We the Krewe of the Scarlett Fortuna birthed in Pinellas, Florida work towards promoting education and reading among school age children by partnering with charitable organizations and foundations, performing themed events, and bringing their literature alive. Collectively as a Krewe, we strive to earn funds to assist with our events and donations to further our cause as we work to restore the fun and excitement in learning by promoting their literature one 'R' at a time.
Our organization was formed in April 2011 after our group of volunteers switched from Medieval Literature Presentations to the world of Pirates. Since then, we have been a registered Non-Profit with the State of Florida. As of January 2018, we have been approved as a 501(c)3 Organization and are quite excited for the potential of the future with our cause.
Our team has traveled to events across the State of Florida and beyond, done digital presentations for children out of state, visited hospitals, schools, festivals, and more! Our historically themed careening encampment is a highlight for most events, we also perform interactive presentations, run a mobile book tent where children can receive a free book, and much more. We look forward to working with more great volunteers in the future! Huzzah!
