Tonight (Sept. 22), New Orleans Carnival Krewes are hosting a fundraiser for first responders as part of the annual Krewes for Karnival’s First Responders event. A portion of the proceeds will go to purchasing new body armor for NOPD patrol officers.
The event starts at 7 p.m. at Fulton Alley, located at 600 Fulton Street. Tickets can be purchased at www.krewesforkarnival.com in advance or at the door.
The group has a fundraising goal of $80,000.
In 2015, Krewes for Karnival's First Responders raised $50,000 to purchase Wireless – Hands Free Communicators for 200 motorcycle NOPD officers.
