Krewe of Morpheus goes the extra mile to give back to Children's Hospital

Each year, Morpheus along with other New Orleans area Mardi Gras krewes, donate themed throws as prizes for the Children's Hospital Guild's annual Mardi Gras Mambo Bingo.

But Brad Naquin, Krewe vice president/director of throws and distribution, and his krewe are adding to their donation this year by staging a Mini Mardi Gras parade for the event.

It only took Naquin a few hours to respond to a request from Children's Hospital for donations for their fundraiser. It was a call he was excited to make to repay the hospital that has done so much for his family.

Naquin's daughter has had three surgeries at the hospital since her birth in 2011. Having spent many hours at the hospital he has come to appreciate the facility and the compassionate staff.
