Our Mission at Krewe de Pink is to raise awareness about breast cancer and to raise money for breast cancer research. Through our participation in Carnival and our increased participation at our fundraising events, we feel confident that we are accomplishing our mission.
In 2016, Krewe de Pink donated $11,500 for breast cancer research. Please note that no one in Krewe de Pink receives compensation for their efforts, we are a 100% volunteer organization where all proceeds go toward our mission.

$1,000 Donation to the BCRF
Seven years ago, a group of concerned and passionate individuals formed The New Orleans Friends of the BCRF. That same group, desiring to make a larger impact locally, stayed together and created Krewe de Pink. In keeping with the original founding tradition, Krewe de Pink will continue to support the BCRF with a portion of its proceeds.
In Memory of Gilda J. Gegenheimer
Longtime bookkeeper and manager at the Dry Dock Cafe in Algiers Point, Gilda touched so many lives through the years with her kindness and beautiful smile. She will be sadly missed. In lieu of flowers, a $500 donation in her memory was made to the Gayle and Tom Benson Cancer Center at Ochsner Foundation Hospital.
