February 1999

The idea was born to bring Mardi-Gras in Visalia.  Enthusiasm and high spirits for this event snowballed into an annual fundraiser. As time passed in later years the Mardi-Gras event eventually retired itself.

The Creative Center Foundation Golf Tournament was introduced as a new fundraising event. Allowing us to spread the word about The Creative center to a new demographic the golf tournament proved to be a success and is on the calendar to become an annual event!
