Kiwanis Applebee's Fundraiser

Our Imperial Beach/South Bay Kiwanis club’s Pancake Breakfast fundraiser held at Applebee’s Chula Vista on August 10th was a hearty success according to the diners who turned out to enjoy heaping plates of hot food and refreshments in support of a great cause. The “wait staff” was attentive and professional thanks to the club volunteers and youth who were in full service mode, both for the event and in the selling of tickets.

Kiwanis invests in our communities. The proceeds from this and other fundraisers allow us to host programs and events that support our local youth and their families in a variety of ways:

  • Through recognition of outstanding scholastic achievement and leadership in our elementary, middle, and high schools.
  • Through service projects that count as credit towards graduation and college admission.
  • Through the support of and involvement in our Mar Vista “Key Club”.  The Key Club provides high school students hands on opportunities for planning, organizing and leading events in and for the community in a fun and respected social venue.
  • Providing opportunities for learning about and experiencing the world around us in venues  such as our upcoming Kiwanis Kids Ocean Discovery Day taking place Saturday, Sept 28th at the end of the Imperial Beach Pier.  Here, our youth and their families will interact with divers and scientists on opening day of Lobster season. 
  • Hosting our annual Kiwanis Kids Fishing Derby, now in its 39th year, held just this past week at the Pier.
  • Providing an ever expanding list of fun, healthy, and educational activities to engage our youth and their families!

We value and depend on the support the citizens of Imperial Beach/South Bay provide thru your financial giving, club membership, and as supporters and sponsors of our events.

To all who attended, supported, and participated in the Applebee’s Pancake Breakfast, Thank You!
