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.

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.
