Krewe of Vixens

Krewe of Vixens (KOV) is a non-profit organization (Krewe) dedicated to providing financial, emotional, and educational support services of individuals with Ovarian Cancer.  We support women of all ages, in all stages of Ovarian Cancer, along with their caregivers, offering knowledge, encouragement and friendship..

With your support, KOV will help fund the best and most promising Ovarian Cancer research efforts while supporting women and their loved ones affected by the disease in our quest to end this terrible disease.

About the Krewe of Vixens

Early in 2014, five local NW Florida women joined forces to launch a new Mardi Gras Krewe (a non-profit organization) to:

  • Help raise awareness of OVARIAN CANCER;
  • Support for those affected by OVARIAN CANCER, and
  • Raise funds to fight OVARIAN CANCER


Currently, we are going into our seventh year, 2021-2022 and are now 48 members strong, after starting with 22 lovely Vixens in our inaugural year!  Our Krewe is by invitation only, however, if you are interested in joining, please send us an email introducing yourself and expressing your interest in becoming a Vixen. We would love to meet like-minded ladies and may one day, open the Krewe to all.

Meet the Founding Members

It all started with an idea to start a Mardi Gras Krewe, but we wanted to do more than just Mardi Gras.  So, the idea became stronger and larger with “Helping stop the number one killer of women of all ages – Ovarian Cancer”.
