The King and Queen election turned into a very tight race on Saturday night. The Angladas and Rincons were neck and neck for the majority of the night until the Rincons took a substantial lead towards the end of the race.  If you know Marianne Anglada then you also know she is not one to go down without a fight.  Some quick campaigning and maybe a few fancy moves on the dance floor earned the Angladas a last minute rush of votes.  That swarm of votes just made it in time to beat the buzzer and place Marianne and Richard on the top of the count.

The Angladas beat the Rincons by a difference of only $3.00 to win the ever-so coveted title of King and Queen for the All Saints 20th Mardi Gras Celebration.  King Richard and Queen Marianne earned themselves a few gift certificates from Peppers Grill & Bar, a gift certificate to Tracy’s Nails & Spa and two free tickets to next year’s Mardi Gras.

It is rather fitting that the Angladas were crowned.  Much like our DJ, Louis Najar, they have been a staple of the Mardi Gras celebrations for all its twenty years.

Congratulations to the new royals.

Overall the election generated more than $1,500 in just a few hours.  All of which will go to the day-to-day operations of All Saints Catholic School and that benefits the kids of Roswell.  Who says you can’t have a good time and still make a difference?
