The Mystic Krewe of Pegasus is a group of unique and diverse individuals that have come together for one sole purpose: To Help Those In Need! We "Party FOR A Cause!" Every year our reigning King and Queen Pegasus will pick one or two charities that we will work with and raise money for. We have been honored to continue this since 2003. In that time we have raised money for all the non-profits listed above and will continue to do so moving forward. None of this is possible without the loving hearts of our supporters and sponsors!
