Milwaukee – Today, Senator Larson released the following statement regarding the honor of being named Mardi Gras King.
“My wife and I are humbled and grateful to be named this year’s South-Side Foundation Mardi Gras King and Queen! The South-Side Scholarship Foundation was founded in 1969 and is celebrating its 51st year. During that time they have given away 930 scholarships totaling $600,000. Last year, during their 50th anniversary, they raised $50,000 and gave away fifty $1,000 scholarships.
The Mardi Gras celebration is the South-Side Scholarship Foundation’s premiere benefit, and we are proud to participate in this great organization. The Mardi Gras will be on March 2nd at the Oak Creek Community Center, from 5:30 – 8:00 PM. I hope to see you all there and laissez le bon temps rouler!”
