In New Orleans, a Krewe is a social organization that hosts an annual ball and puts on a parade to celebrate Mardi Gras.
At Fur-Eh!, a Krewe will take on that same role by holding a ball on either Thursday, Friday or Saturday night and will decorate one or more floats as part of the Fur-Eh! Parade.
Each Krewe will have a leader (or a group of leaders if they prefer) that will be responsible for their Krewe's participation during Mardi Paws. They will liaison with a Fur-Eh! Staff Member and may be required to attend certain meetings with Fur-Eh! Staff.
Fur-Eh! Staff may not apply to be a Krewe leader.
Canadian Anthropomorphics Inc. (the organization that operates Fur-Eh!) will provide “seed money” to each of the three Krewes in the amount of $300 each* that they can use towards running an event, purchasing supplies, etc. It is entirely up to each Krewe if they want to invest more than the amount provided, but no additional reimbursement by CAI will apply. Krewes may also not collect any funds from other attendees regardless of Krewe affiliation.
Each Krewe will host a ball which is open to all Guests regardless of Krewe affiliation on Thursday, Friday & Saturday night. These will take place just before the dance each night (which means we’ll be having a Thursday night dance in 2020) and Krewes may theme their ball if they wish to do so.
*receipts will be required and will be paid as a reimbursement up to $300.
