Our History

Moolah Shrine Clowns

Welcome to the World Famous Moolah Shrine Clowns, we are a voluntary group who work and perform to bring laughter, happiness and peace to young and old alike. We bring momentary relief from the stress, pain and uncertainty of today’s world. The Moolah clowns are people like you who felt the calling in their life to take some of their valuable time and give it back to those who so desperately need it; the children of the Shrine Hospitals.The Moolah Shrine Clowns perform in parades, private business, and fundraising events to raise money for the operation of our Hospitals. We also spend time at the Shriners Hospital in St. Louis entertaining the children. The Clown Unit promotes our Shrine philanthropy, Shriners Hospitals for Children and particularly the Sneaker Fund for Burns Research at our Hospitals. By providing opportunities for competition and encouraging fellowship through the Shrine fraternity, Shrine Clowns create joy and laughter for everyone.If you have the desire to give back some of your valuable time to do this rewarding work we will help you. The Clown meets in the evenings twice a month to be compatible with your work schedule. You will be taught by our own Clown professionals in the art of makeup, costuming, balloon sculpture, magic and much more.
