Kiwanis Vancouver is a volunteer-driven service club dedicated to bettering the lives of children and youth across the city. By providing young people with opportunities to build self-confidence as well as develop teamwork and leadership abilities, we can help them become the leaders of tomorrow.
From enhancing summer camp facilities to building a computer lab and kitchen for a youth resource centre to donating books to inner city schools and providing highly-skilled athletic coaches for school track and field teams, our Club is passionate about changing the world, one child at a time.
We are proud of our over 90 years of serving the children of Vancouver and we encourage you to learn more about us and our involvement in the community.
On Thursday, October 20th, 2016, we are holding our Annual Kiwanis Wine Tasting & Silent Auction from 6-9pm at the Creekside Community Center overlooking False Creek in beautiful Olympic Village. Tickets at $55 per person which includes tastings, light refreshments, and door prizes.
Proceeds from the event will support special programs for disadvantaged youth, including KidSport BC, which provides grant to children to participate in a sports season of their choice. Last year’s grants also included Big Sister’s Mentorship program and the PLEA Kidstart program for children having difficulties at school due to physical or emotional problems. Through our matching grant program, we double the support of member donations to charities such as Covenant House, The Salvation Army, November, and Canuck Place - to name a few.
Please join us for a fun evening for a great cause! If you are interested in attending or donating a silent auction item, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
