Ptolemy Philanthropy & Charities
The Grand Krewe of Ptolemy is dedicated to giving back to the Memphis community through its philanthropic activities and support of Carnival Memphis Children Charities.
Our philanthropy committee is dedicated to setting up various volunteer and charity opportunities for our members through out the year. These activities range from doing yard work and maintenance for local non-profits to donating teddy bears or coats to kids at our annual Holiday party. We also fully support Carnival Memphis Children Charities by annually participating in the Krewes for Kids and throwing our own fund raiser, our annual Poker Run.

Ptolemy's Designated Charity
Binghampton Christian Academy is a Pre-kindergarten through Eighth grade Christian school for children who need more love and hope. Most come from the Binghampton community with the largest number coming from housing projects near the school. BCA houses a number of their students on campus in dorms during the week. Ptolemy has partnered with BCA’s residential program and often provides meals and activities for the students living on campus.
