(Covington) Hundreds of people came out to pack The Northern Kentucky Convention Center for the 23rd annual Mardi Gras for Homeless Children fundraiser. Vendors had samples of food and drinks. Clowns painted faces, put on glitter tattoos, and made balloon animals and hats for guest. There was a silent and live action. The money raised at the event benefits local homeless shelters for children.  700WLW is proud to once again sponsor the event this year. Our Scott Sloan served as the Mardi Gras king of the event and Anthony Munoz served as grand marshal.
