Why be a Krewe of Aquarius sponsor?

Sponsorship is a great way to promote your business to the community! Many companies sponsor Mardi Gras Galveston through the Galveston Park Board. This money does not directly support the parades. All parade cost is the burden of the Krewe putting on the parade. The Krewe has to pay several thousand dollars in city fees, police charges and clean up, plus have insurance in case of any mishaps. We have to pay stipends to bands and schools for participation. The Krewe of Aquarius is incorporated as a nonprofit fraternal organization and this is why we seek your help as a Krewe sponsor. This form of advertising is tax deductible and a legitimate business expense, often with a greater tax break than if given as charity! Plus all money goes directly to putting on the parades. However, more than that, we are offering you a piece of Mardi Gras. We will use all funds to offset the cost of the parades and associated activities. No one associated with the Krewe is paid for any services. We are all volunteers. No Board Member or Officer is paid. Every member is a volunteer.
