Round cash money! Blanc et Noir needs to raise $1000 by Sun, Feb 8

Blanc et Noir needs to raise $1000 to march in the Krewe of Highland parade, 2009.

Fees due to the Krewe of Highland are $200, says Terry Gill, captain of the krewe. The Red & Black Brass Band gets $800, says Daryl Williams.

Raising that sum will not be easy. If we do not collect a thousand bucks by Feb 8, I will cancel the band and return everyone's money.

We will then try again in 2010, I hope.

Email me with your contribution pledges as soon as possible. Any amount will be satisfactory, though we need like nine people to hit the $100 mark. See more at

I'll be paying $100 this year.

Btw: Zulu first paraded in 1901, acc to It took the name Zulu in 1909 and first tossed a coconut in 1910.
