barbecue event

The Kiwanis Club’s Smokin’ Hot Barbecue Fest on April 27 raised $9,360 that will be distributed to local nonprofits at the end of the year.

Each year, the local Kiwanis Club holds four main fundraising events, and at the end of the year the organization distributes the collected funds to four main local nonprofits: Avalon, Bacon Street, the Community Action Agency and the 4-H Educational Center.

The Club also gives smaller awards to other groups, including CHKD, The Arc of Greater Williamsburg, the Williamsburg Baseball League and the William & Mary College Swim Team Swim for Cancer.

The funds also support Kiwanis-sponsored service leadership clubs at CKI, Walsingham Academy, and Lafayette and Jamestown High Schools.

The barbecue event takes place every spring; this year’s event featured lots of food, games and live music. Kiwanis member Rolf Kramer thanked all the Kiwanis club members who helped during the event in an email announcing the final tally of funds.

He noted that the event was a success thanks to the help of volunteers outside the Club, too. “Making this a Kiwanis family event was the support we received from the clubs of our Service Leadership Program,” he said.

“The BBQ volunteers included members of our Aktion club, CKI from the College of William and Mary, and Key Clubbers from Jamestown HS, Lafayette, HS, and Walsingham Academy.

“We would also like to send a huge thank you to the many volunteers from 3 of our grant headliners: Avalon, Bacon Street and the W/JCC Community Action Center.”

The next Kiwanis event is the Shrimp Feast that will take place September 15 at the 4-H Educational Center.
