Krewe of the Gatsby Girls, Inc. is a 1920s-themed, "roaring good time" Mardi Gras krewe! We are easy to spot with women dressed in authentic 1920s Gatsby attire, adorned with gold and pearls, and a staple of the 1920s - the headpiece.
More than just a krewe, we are also a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. We are comprised of 135 women who share a common bond in charitable work, placing high value in community service, fundraising, and charitable promotion.
We are active in the community through philanthropy, constantly building partnerships with various organizations. This year, Krewe of the Gatsby Girls has again chosen Capstone Adaptive Learning & Therapy Centers, Inc, to receive a portion of proceeds from our 7th Annual Speakeasy Ball. Last year, thanks to our generous ball sponsors and attendees, we were able to donate $28,601.34 to Capstone!
Interested in joining our krewe? Our nomination period is July - August every year. New members are nominated by current members in good standing. Come visit us at a parade lineup or event to get to know us!
