NVC Foundation: A Successful Mardi Gras Event
The NVC Foundation (NVCF) hosted a “Mardi Gras” themed fundraising event on February 4, 2023. The Mardi Gras event was held with two goals in mind. The number one goal was to help put the memories of the COVID pandemic in the “rear view mirror” and look ahead toward the future. The second goal was to replenish the program funds of the organization. The Mardi Gras proceeds will support its many educational and cultural programs.
