“The Best Party in Town,” as it is often called, is a lavish evening to revel in fine dining, lively dancing and plenty of surprises at Cox Business Center in downtown Tulsa. All Carnivale proceeds benefit Mental Health Association Oklahoma's housing programs, among other services.
While Carnivale has always been known as the “Best Party in Town” — it also supports one of the most important causes in town. The fight to end homelessness, especially for our veterans, has become more important than ever. The work of the Association has been at the forefront of this mission for decades, and continues to make strides to provide housing, educate the public and remove the stigmas of mental illness.
The story of this legendary fundraiser began in 1990, when Mrs. Suzanne Warren co-chaired the inaugural Carnivale, then called Le Masquerade. The fundraiser allowed the Mental Health Association Oklahoma to open its first housing program, Walker Hall, in 1991. At that time, proceeds benefitted only 12 tenants. Today, Carnivale will benefit mothers, fathers, sons and daughters living in our 24 apartment complexes in Tulsa and our apartment complex in Oklahoma City.
Carnivale 2018 will capture the relentless spirit of a WWII-era victory celebration. Be prepared to set sail on the voyage of a lifetime with a crew of amped up Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy-style performances and a victory celebration to support those confronting mental illness and homelessness—particularly our veterans.
