Kiwanis hosts annual fundraiser

‘A Stellar Evening’ is Oct. 13

PORT ORCHARD — Kiwanis Club of Port Orchard once again will be hosting the annual fundraising dinner and auction to support South Kitsap School District service projects.

This year, the theme of the annual dinner and auction is “A Stellar Evening.” The event will take place at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, at McCormick Woods Country Club. Attendees will have dinner, wine and beer, and will take part in a ring toss, and silent and live auctions.

Proceeds from the auction support club service projects in South Kitsap School District, including kindergarten reading, “Terrific Kid” recognition assemblies, students of the Month, field trips to Kitsap Regional Library, Bike Rodeo, and other projects. This spring, the Kiwanis Club of Port Orchard awarded $20,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors from South Kitsap High School.

“The auction is a wonderful event that highlights the work our club does in the community and also helps raise funds to continue the work in coming years,” said club president Mary Beslagic.

Tickets are $50 per person and are available from any Kiwanis Club of Port Orchard member and also at the South Kitsap School District Administration Office. The event has been sponsored in part by the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort and Stafford Suites.
