I Shot the Sheriff

Category: Amputee News

  I Shot the Sheriff… Not really; but, there were a lot of clays shot at the Peg Leg Pirate 15th Annual “Get on the Good Foot” Sporting Clay Shoot! Once again, our Krewe was graciously hosted by Fish Hawk Sporting Clays Range located in Valrico on February 15, 2020. Although the day started off chilly, hot coffee and a hearty breakfast got everyone ready to go out and give it their all. The sound of shot guns echoed from morning till noon as the 43 teams made their way through a divided course consisting of eight 50 round stations each. By lunch that Florida sun was high in the sky and the beer was cold! After bellies were full and thirst was quenched, the award plaques were given to the top teams/shooters and the team that had the most fun. There were also 3 full grog chests raffled off, 2 guns raffled off (1-hand gun and 1-AR15 style), numerous silent auction and additional raffle items won and the 50/50 ticket winner pocketing over $2,000. This is the largest fund-raising event our Krewe puts together each year to continue our mission of helping amputees and their families. Through the years our event has continued to grow with this year being the largest ever. I’m proud to announce we were able to place over $32,000 into our charity account! We are so grateful to the companies and individuals that continue to donate year after year. It is through your generosity, your […]

On February 26, 2020 our Krewe, in co-ordination with Shriners Hospital for Children, presented the first of three trikes to be donated this year. The recipient was a 6-year-old “Shriners Kid” named Laney and this was her first tricycle ever. Riding around the room that sweet little face didn’t stop smiling for a second! Thank you to all that help make our generosity possible.

Peg Leg Krewe helps build prosthetics for kids

Category: Krewe News

By: Lila Gross WFLA News Channel 8 Posted: Jan 26, 2019 12:40 PM EST Updated: Jan 26, 2019 10:23 PM EST TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Argh you ready? The pirates have invaded for Gasparilla and one special krewe isn’t just here to collect booty. The Ye Notorious Peg Leg Krewe pirates aren’t just scallywags when they storm the city of Tampa, they also help kids in need. These hearty pirates aim to help amputees, vets and the kids at Shriners Hospital. The krewe initiated in 2004 after one of their founders was struck by a truck and lost a leg. Today there are 65 members of this “mighty krewe with a cause.” One of those members is Bryan Sinnott, who makes prosthetics for the Shriners kids by day and he puts on his pirate hat at night. “I’ve been a peg leg pirate for five years it’s almost like an intermarriage between the two of us and we help each other out. It’s a wonderful relationship,” Sinnott said. Check out the Peg Leg Krewe during the Gasparilla parade today during live coverage on WFLA News Channel 8.

On January 17, 2019, Ye Notorious Krewe of the Peg Leg Pirate, presented a check to Tampa Bay Prosthetics in the amount of $3,000 to benefit Mr. Pascual Vasquez. Mr. Vasquez is a first-time recipient. The team at Tampa Bay Prosthetics reported that Mr. Vasquez has adapted to his new prosthetic extremely well and is eager to continue making strides in progress. He and his daughter were so very grateful to our Krewe for helping to make his quality of life better. Thank you to all of those that have given generously to make a difference in the lives of each amputee we help. Let this merely be the start to a year filled with new beginnings for our amputees!

The Ye Notorious Krewe of the Peg Leg Pirate came together on May 11th to make a trike presentation at the Shriners Hospital in Tampa. The recipient was an adorable 2 year old boy named Kenneth Parker. It is always amazing to see their little faces light up as they begin to peddle around the room. Your heart skips a beat and, at that moment, you’re reminded why our Krewe does what it does, support amputees and their families. That feeling never grows old. It is very rewarding to know that, through the generous donations of our supporters, our Krewe is able to make a difference in a child’s life. With a grateful heart, we thank all those who contribute to make our mission possible.

Peg Leg Bingo

Category: Krewe News

Submitted by: Ellie H Hamburger Mary’s, in Ybor, welcomed our Krewe Monday night, May 21st, to an evening of Drag Queen Bingo! If you’ve never been to one of the bingo nights, you don’t know what you’re missing. Even though the rain dampened the air, that certainly wasn’t the case for our spirits. The evening was filled with lots of laughs, 50/50 ticket sales, awesome prizes, food and bingo! It was a great time to come together and, through the generosity of Krewe members, their guests and patrons of Hamburger Mary’s, we raised funds to benefit our Kause, amputees and their families. A heart felt thank you to all those that supported this event. If you weren’t able to join us this time, we’ll be hosting another night of Drag Queen Bingo, July 23rd, at Hamburger Mary’s in Ybor. We look forward to seeing you.
