Thanks to the success of Beta Theta’s Mardi Gras, its signature fundraiser, the philanthropic organization was able to award scholarships to local high school graduates.
Save the Date! Beta Theta will be celebrating its 16th Mardi Gras Celebration at Clermont Performing Arts Center on March 14, 2020. Mardi Gras is Beta Theta’s signature fund-raising event. Last year, it raised over $17,000 for local scholarships and charitable organizations.

Lake Minneola High School graduate Michaela Gonzalez (above, right) was awarded a $2,000 scholarship from Beta Theta to attend Lake Sumter State College this fall. The scholarship was presented by Beta Theta member Lucy Hage.
