ARE YOU READY TO ROLL WITH THE MUSES IN 2011???
Did you hear the membership was closed and the wait-list was over 1,000 women long?
Attention wannabe Goddesses! This is a once in a lifetime chance for a woman to ride in the 2011 Krewe of Muses Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans on Thursday, March 3, 2011. Join 872 riding Muses for the annual and much anticipated parade… and jump ahead of the 1,000+ Muses on the wait list!
Ask anyone who has rolled with the Muses…It’s absolutely Inspirational!
The minimum bid for the ride is $1,000 and the rider must be a woman over the age of 18. Prize includes priceless ride plus costume, mask, entry to the riding-members-only pre-party beginning at 2:00 p.m. and the (always amazing and much anticipated) post-parade aMUSEment Party, plus a small package of throws (not enough for the ride.) Throws, which cost approximately $1,000, must be purchased separately and are available through the Krewe of Muses.
PARADE FOR A CAUSE! The recipient of the proceeds is the St. Bernard Project, which has been working tirelessly to help solve the enduring housing and mental health needs in the New Orleans area resulting from Katrina and, more recently, the oil spill. Embracing an all-under-one-roof model, the mission of SBP, a nonprofit, community-based organization, is to remove physical, mental, and emotional barriers for vulnerable families, senior citizens and disabled residents who are struggling to recover from the devastation and trauma caused by these disasters. SBP serves those most in need by rebuilding homes, providing a free high-quality mental health and wellness care clinic, and job training in residential construction. SBP takes donated funds, materials, and energy and puts them to work with efficacy and speed.

About this nonprofit:
The mission of the St. Bernard Project is to remove barriers for families who wish to return home in St. Bernard Parish, a community that was inundated by flood waters after Hurricane Katrina. Primarily we achieve our mission through our Rebuilding Program. In 8-12 weeks of volunteer labor for about $15,000 we can rebuild a family’s home. To date we have helped 206 families rebuild and move back into their homes with support from over 12,000 volunteers.
