In it's 15th year, United Way of Calvert County has moved from the traditional competition for the Mardi Gras crown, introducing Honorary King Chris Moore and Queen Jeannie Stone to lead the Mardi Gras fundraising campaign, with their official crowning taking place at the gala on March 1, 2014.
About Chris Moore
As a realtor for ReMax and member of the Committee for Governmental Affairs with Southern Maryland Association of Realtors and Calvert County Chamber of Commerce, Chris Moore plays an active role in our community. He honed his fundraising skills through involvement in Huntingtown High School Boosters and Calvert American Little League, and volunteered to serve as Honorary Mardi Gras King because he says,“United Way is active and efficient in bringing needed services and resources to the community.” Chris Moore lives in Huntingtown with his wife Marybeth, and children Sarah, Christopher Jr. and Patrick.
About Jeannie Cousineaux-Stone
Although a longtime Calvert County resident and co-owner of the famous Stoney’s Restaurants, Jeannie Stone actually grew up in New Orleans (making every real Mardi Gras since the age of 4!) As the 2014 Honorary Mardi Gras Queen, not only does she bring authenticity, but a strong reputation for philanthropic giving as previous chair of the Cancer Gala and through past involvement in Shop with a Cop, Wounded Warrior and Calvert Hospice. Jeannie says, “I feel blessed to be an active part of the community.” Jeannie and her husband Phillip live in Solomons.
