The Kiwanis Club of Tampa is excited to announce our first annual Havana Nights Casino Fundraiser benefiting the Tampa Kiwanis Foundation. The Havana Nights Casino Fundraiser will be held on January 7, 2017 at the Lion’s Eye Institute in Ybor City. This event will be a night of excitement, socializing, and gaming with 100% of the proceeds donated to The Tampa Kiwanis Foundation.
Where does the money go? In just the past three years alone, The Tampa Kiwanis Foundation has given more than $360,000 back to the local Tampa Bay community. The Tampa Kiwanis Foundation supports the local community in a variety of ways, from issuing grants to local charities down to the hands on approach of building ramps for disabled youth. The Foundation also sponsors local service leadership programs at the University of South Florida (Circle K), nine local high schools (Key Clubs), one local middle school (Builders Club), and seven local elementary schools (Terrific Kids). In addition, The Tampa Kiwanis Foundation hosts the annual Children’s Christmas Party for approximately 150 of Hillsborough County’s most vulnerable children, sponsors two “back to school” immunization events (Be Wise Immunize) each serving more than 500 families, builds Reading Rooms in Boys and Girls Clubs and awards thousands of dollars worth of scholarships for local students. For this fiscal year (2016), we can share that the Tampa Kiwanis Foundation has reinvested almost $100,000 back into our community and we are not even done yet!
It’s people like you that make it happen and we hope you will consider supporting our efforts by attending our Casino Night.
