Become a Major Sponsor

As planning for the 31st annual Mardi Gras Ball takes place, we realize our mission is as important today as it was 36 years ago. Our goal is to continue to operate and maintain the Human Services Center that guarantees our non-profit agencies a rent-free office. This allows the agencies to concentrate their funds and resources directly on programs and support for their clients. None of this is possible without your dedication to the underserved in the Conejo Valley.

By pledging your Major Sponsorship commitment for the 2024 Mardi Gras Ball, you will ensure access to important services in one location. On behalf of the 14 non-profit tenants and those they serve at the Human Services Center, we thank you for your continued support.

A Message From Robin Britt...

Dear Community Leader,

As planning for the 31st  annual Mardi Gras Ball takes place, we realize our mission is as important today as it was 36 years ago. Our goal is to continue to operate and maintain the Human Services Center that guarantees our non-profit agencies a rent-free office. This allows the agencies to concentrate their funds and resources directly on programs and support for their clients. None of this is possible without your dedication to the underserved in the Conejo Valley.

As the need for access to human services has grown in our community, so too have the programs providing these services within the walls of the Human Services Center. Through your generous donations and sponsorships, these are just some of the successes realized during this past year:

  • 14 non-profit agencies diverted over $300,000 in saved rent to their programs.
  • 39 homeless people were housed.
  • 58 people were rescued from human trafficking.
  • 125 disabled persons received life skills training for independence.
  • 350 people were assisted with employment services.
  • 2,000 vulnerable children, adults, and seniors received regular exercise programs from licensed trainers.
  • 5,000 people received grief support and hospice services.
  • 5,030 people learned to prevent bullying through kindness and inclusion workshops.
  • Critical children and family services continued at no cost for over 79,000 people such as: food security; financial assistance; mental health; parenting education; medical, dental, and legal services.

The 2024 Mardi Gras Ball is our largest fundraiser of the year and it is expected to be attended by more than 300 community leaders, guests, and media. Together we will celebrate your commitment to the health and wellness of this community with delicious food and spirits, live and silent auctions, wonderful music, dancing, and camaraderie.

A complete list of sponsorship levels and benefits is included for your consideration. On behalf of the 14 non-profit tenants and those they serve at the Human Services Center, we thank you for your continued support.

Kind regards,
Robin Britt

Each year, Community Conscience honors two individuals for their exemplary community service. This year’s honorees have contributed their time, energy, and resources to bettering our community for many years and in many ways. As such, they have earned the honor to be crowned King and Queen and reign over this year’s Mardi Gras Ball.

King David Catlin

King David Catlin believes strongly in giving back to the community. David and his wife, Linda, give generously to many local charities, -including Senior Concerns, the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Greater Conejo Valley, New West Symphony, Casa Pacifica, Safe Passage, Hospice of the Conejo, and the Cancer Support Community.

David has served 10 years on Senior Concerns’ Board of Directors, helping it meet the needs of an expanding senior population.  In 2015, the Catlins opened the Linda and David Catlin Boys and Girls Club on the Campus of Lindero Canyon Middle School, ensuring children have a place to go after school for enriching and fulfilling activities.
