41 st Anniversary • 2022 morgan hill mushroom mardi gras festival program 6 Giving Back to the Community The Morgan Hill Mushroom Mardi Gras embodies more than just a two-day, fun fest for local residents and our Bay Area neighbors. The real reason for all the fungus-eating and fun(gi)-making is giving back to the community. The Mushroom Mardi Gras is a charitable, non-profit organization; every dollar above and beyond the cost of putting on the festival goes towards scholarships to seniors who live within the boundaries of the Morgan Hill Unified School District (MHUSD), mini grants to elementary and middle schools in the MHUSD and donations to non-profit clubs and organizations that participate in the festival. The Morgan Hill Mushroom Mardi Gras began awarding scholarships in 1984. For the past thirty-six years, 1190 students have been awarded scholarships, totaling over $1.25million dollars for continuing education. Any senior living in the Morgan Hill Unified School District, including private schools, Central High School and the Morgan Hill Adult School are eligible to apply for a scholarship to continue their education. Scholarship recipients are selected based on a combination of academic performance, community and school service and need. After being shut down for wo years due to COVID-19, the committee is excited to award a total of seventeen (17) scholarships with fourteen (14) to Live Oak and Sobrato High School seniors, two (2) to Central High School and one (1) to a private High School, totaling $17,000. The five member scholarship committee, headed by Ron Woolf, Treasurer of the Board will screen and interview students in late April. Family, relatives and friends, and the general public will be able to meet these outstanding students at the Community Center Amphitheater Stage on Sunday, May 29 at 1:30pm. Many of these star students will also roam around the festival as Goodwill Ambassadors. For more information on the scholarship program or any of these services, please contact the Morgan Hill MushroomMardi Gras office at (408) 778-1786.
