Joy of Life Mardi Gras Parade

In 2013 a nonprofit called Joy of Life on the Gulf Coast was formed to primarily benefit the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Their board includes former patients of St. Jude and parents of St Jude patients.
The group’s big annual fundraiser is the Wind Creek Hospitality Joy of Life Mardi Gras Ball, which includes “the culinary skills of Mobile's most amazing chefs and restaurants,” according to the Joy of Life web site, and “a live and silent auction, as well as great musical entertainment, all while raising funds for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.”
Almost from the start, the group wanted to include a Mardi Gras parade as part of its fundraising efforts, and this year, they staged their first one.
