Krewe du Santé was established in 2014 as a non-profit corporation in Louisiana. A team of five doctors, a marketing executive and professional fundraiser created this corporation to support the efforts of local and international groups who perform community services in the healthcare field. Krewe du Santé’s mission is to financially support medical causes and further the care of under-privileged persons both in the New Orleans area and abroad by fundraising through music and art.
