Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus is a Tampa Bay organization founded on March 17, 2003. We are a family-oriented Krewe open to both singles and families that participates in multiple community parades and other activities each year. The goal of the Krewe is to promote environmental awareness and conservation through participation and to have fun in the beautiful environment of Tampa Bay. Our two primary charities are the 1Voice Foundation and The Florida Aquarium.
For our delayed (due to rain on the originally scheduled date) contribution to National Oceans Day, YMKN members took to the Hillsborough River on June 22nd for a trash pick-up & river barhop. There is a load of trash on the Hillsborough River, in the water but also, especially, on the shore. In the future, we will adjust events to accommodate collecting the large amounts of trash along the river shore lines.
What a great time YMKN krewe members had at the krewe “members only” Nauti Ball event on June 15th! The Havana Nights theme was supported with casino tables, cigars, and dancing. Congrats to Brian Willis, the big casino winner. Many thanks to Shannon Cavins for pulling the whole event together.
For the third year in a row, Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus supported What the Buc’s Trunkslammer fund raiser benefiting the 1Voice Foundation. On April 14, 2019, YMKN presented Trunkslammer golfers with challenges on two different holes in the 18 hole event. We were also represented by a team participating in the golf contest. Thanks to all krewe members who volunteered and participated. Trunkslammers raised around $35K for 1Voice. So much fun.
Lovely luncheon aboard Holland America Rotterdam as 1Voice Foundation says thank you to all of its volunteers. Krewe of the Nautilus presents a Quest for Hope check for $8500.
Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus was extremely happy to host children from the 1Voice Foundation, the Tampa Foundation that provides full family support for families that have children with pediatric cancer, as well as one of our military families from MacDill AFB and our own kids, on our float for the 2019 Gasparilla Extravaganza and Children’s Parade. It was a perfectly beautiful day for the parade. The crowds were excited and so were all of our kids. What a fun day!!
