More than 300 guests attended the LeFleur’s Bluff Chapter of The Links, Incorporated annual Mardi Gras Ball on Jan. 30 at the Jackson Country Club.
Proceeds from this fundraising event went back into the community to assist with the many programs that the LeFleur’s Bluff Chapter provides. For the past two years, the funds helped host the Just Rarin’ to Read program. It is a reading book collection drive for Jackson Public Schools. The generous donations raised from the ball also support the chapter’s adopted school, Rowan Middle School.
Chapter President Bettye Graves says “We had a ball at the Mardi Gras Ball but most importantly, we were very proud and happy to host this event in support of the Just Rarin’ to Read summer reading program for JPS. For the past two years, we have been able to donate over $54,000 to this project and with the help of our supporters, both in attendance at the Ball, and through monetary sponsorship, we continue to have success funding our community projects.”
The LeFleur’s Bluff Chapter is made up of 35 women from across the Jackson Metro area who are dedicated to friendship and service.
