About Our Auction
Are You Goddess Enough to Ride With the Muses?
This auction item is an opportunity for a woman (over age 18) to ride in the 2020 Krewe of Muses Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans on Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020 during our 20th anniversary ride. The proceeds of this auction will go to the following worthy charity: 504 Queens.
The auctioned item includes the ride plus a costume, mask, entry to the riding member-only pre-party beginning at 2 p.m. and post-parade aMUSEment party featuring live music and free drinks and food, plus a small package of cups to throw (not enough for the ride). The value of this item is $900. Additional throws, which cost approximately $1,000, must be purchased separately.
The 504 Queens is a New Orleans African American women’s empowerment non-profit organization whose good works came to the nation’s attention after they became the victims of discrimination while attending a showing of the movie “Harriet” on November 3, 2019. Rather than focus on themselves, they used that opportunity to provide for others. The 504 Queens volunteer as mentors to young women, feed families living in poverty and work with young people at Covenant House and other organizations. The proceeds of this ride auction will provide additional funds to enable this non-profit organization to assist women and children in need in their communities. The excess amount paid for this item in excess of its value may be deductible as a charitable donation. Please consult your tax adviser regarding deductibility.
