Posted by on May 11, 2018 in 1Voice Foundation, YMKN Events, YMKN News, YMKN Volunteer Event

What a blast YMKN had supporting the 4th Annual Trunk Slammers Invitational to benefit the 1Voice Foundation, our primary charity.  The event put on by WHAT THE BUC REALLY MATTERS included 4-person scrambles, lunch pre-tourney and an awards reception with dinner following the fun on the course. Fun on the course included long drive contest, closest to the pin, a trick shot artist, a pneumatic golf gun hole, drink stations every four holes, amazing raffle packages and the soon-to-be-famous costume contest.         YMKN had two teams participating in the event as golfers and numerous volunteers supporting the event.  Our krewe sponsored a hole featuring an interesting challenge, jello shooters, and a choice of shots for the challenge winners.  Sincere thanks to our golfers Leesa Moore, Marshall Jones, Minesh Patel, and Mike Castellari.  Also a big thank you to our volunteers Vanessa Morgenstern, Mike Pastore, Karen Garcia-McGowan, Monica Throckmorton, Carol Conn, Igxie and Alberto...

Posted by on Jan 21, 2018 in 1Voice Foundation, YMKN Events, YMKN News

It was a terrifically fun day with Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus at the 2018 Gasparilla Children’s Extravaganza Parade.  YMKN had 1Voice children, military families, and our own krewe children join us for fun activities and bead throwing.  The weather was perfect – not too hot, not to cold.  Overall, it was a wonderful day. Pre-parade fun included food, crafts, games, and face painting. And then the parade rolled!

Posted by on Nov 21, 2017 in 1Voice Foundation, Quest for Hope, YMKN Events, YMKN Fund Raiser, YMKN News

Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus can’t thank enough Moffitt Cancer Center and Universal Fire Systems.  These amazing and supportive businesses made a huge difference as sponsors of the 11th Annual Quest for Hope. Obviously we would not have a successful event collecting funds to donate to the 1Voice Foundation and the Florida Aquarium without those of you who participated on the scavenger teams and those who volunteered and made the event flow as planned.  Our heartfelt thanks goes to all of you! We are also sincerely grateful to these establishments for their continued support of Quest for Hope! Many partnered with us 11 years ago when we launched Quest. Several are new participants.  We appreciate you and could not make this event happen without your support! Many...

  Ye Mystic Krewe of the Nautilus joined What the Buc Really Matters at the 3rd Annual Trunkslammers Invitational benefitting the 1Voice Foundation.  Energetic and exuberant golfers hit the River Hills Country Club golf course to tackle the whacky challenges at various holes, all for the purpose raising money to fight pediatric cancer.  “What the Buc” created a lively and boisterous event that was clearly enjoyed by all!  YMKN added to it by having a golf team and by manning hole 6 with a tee up challenge and jello shot rewards.     Prizes were plentiful and dinner was great.   YMKN gives a big shout out to “What the Buc,”  to all of the 1Voice volunteers, & to the golf participants, without whom the event certainly could not have come off as well as it did.   Very proud of our YMKN Golf participants Minesh Patel, Mike Castellari, Chris Morgenstern, and (in spirit because he had the mumps) Marshall Jones!!   Also, a big thanks goes to YMKN volunteers Monica Throckmorton, Shannon Daugherty, Mike Pastore, Carol Conn, Karen Garcia McGowan, Tracey Mills and Michelle Whitmire.  Hooray to Karen Garcia McGowan who created our 6th hole challenge and who helped, along with Shannon and Carol, make the jello shot rewards.  And thanks to krewe members Michelle Urbanski and Christine Mattioli who joined the event for the dinner and prizes.  It was clear What the Buc and 1Voice Foundation appreciated the participation....
