Krewe de Lune's Lunar Lagniappe 2019: A Benefit for STAR (Sexual Trauma Awareness & Response)

Thursday, May 16, 2019 - 6:00pm
Party with Krewe de Lune for a good cause! We are hosting an evening of swimming, dancing and more at The Drifter Hotel while we raise funds for S.T.A.R (Sexual Trauma Awareness & Response)! The krewe will showcase hot tunes from musical guest hollagraham and a dance performance from their very own Star-Steppin' Cosmonaughties. Thanks to a generous donation from Celebration Distillation/Old New Orleans Rum, all proceeds of the signature Gris Gris Daiquiri will go to support STAR, in addition to all funds that are raised through the silent auction, ticket sales and the raffle. There will also be a costume pop-up shop thanks to Lady Ginger Licious, a glitter bar with samples from Elektra Cosmetics, and a raffle for a chance to win an intergalactic mural that was painted live at the krewe’s annual Mardi Gras soiree, the Space Ball. The krewe will also accept financial contributions via PayPal at (Please leave a comment noting that the funds are for STAR.) Highlights of the auction include: ● a membership to The Drifter, which gets the winner and a guest entry into the pool and any special events, 25% off at the cafe, advance chair reservations, and towel service. ● jewelry from Queen's Metal Jewelry ● gifts & accessories from Glitterbox NOLA ● a bar tab from Bayou Wine Garden ● A glitter package from Elektra Cosmetics ● a massage gift certificate from Kyra Mirante ● costume from Lady Ginger Licious ● handmade glassware from Glassblower Ben ● a gift basket from Tabasco that includes ultra-rare varieties of hot sauce ● yoga class passes from Wild Lotus ● a bar tab from Bar Tonique ● a gift certificate from kids’ sports camp Junction Sports ● Pizza Delicious gift card About Krewe de Lune: Krewe de Lune is a New Orleans-based, nonprofit Carnival organization that seeks to empower and improve our galaxy year-round, starting in our local community.
