Krewe de Kure Inc is the community-based, volunteer organization dedicated to utilizing Acadiana’s unique culture in the fight against cancer by raising awareness and funds to support research, education and public services.
We operate in a manner that allows us to give the public information about cancer and to raise funds for the purpose of donating to a charitable organization that shares our desire to support the fight against cancer.
We're combining the soul of Mardi Gras with the heart of the fight against cancer in the Acadiana Area.
We will be accepting donations and holding an annual Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball in the Halloween season as a fundraising Gala. And we plan to be in a Mardi Gras parade throwing traditional beads and other goodies for the cause.
We will communicate our events and news through our website and Facebook pages. Our main concentration is on fundraising for the cancer research organization that we’ve chosen for the year. This year that organization is the American Cancer Society (ACS).
