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.
