Mardi Gras Krewe takes a stand against violence

This year the Krewe of Neptune is taking a stand against violence with its annual charitable donation. The all male Krewe presented the Gulf Coast Women's Center for Nonviloence with a check for $6,700. The center helps women who have been victims of domestic violence.

"It's not often that we can really get men engaged in getting the message out there and also just being a part of the prevention, so we're just really glad," said Sandra Morrison with Gulf Coast Women's Center for Nonviolence.

The Krewe raised the money it donated through its annual Tom Wall Golf Tournament.
