A Feb. 9 Poway Kiwanis Foundation dinner with the San Diego Padres raised more...more
Welcome to the Kiwanis Club of Poway, CA!
Since 1973 the Kiwanis Club of Poway has been helping local children and having a good time doing it! We're known as the club that gets things done! Our 75+ members meet each Thursday in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Frankly, we're a bit non-traditional and proud of it!
Our service projects range from cooking meals for young cancer patients and burn victims to providing holiday gifts for needy kids and scholarships to high school seniors. We work closely with Rady Children's Hospital, The Summit for Children Worldwide and the San Pasqual Academy, the country's only residential high school for foster teens. We are also the proud sponsors of the Miss Poway Scholarship Pageant and in October 2017 will sponsor the Jack-O-Smash Family Festival and Run.
We also help children and teens learn the value of community service through sponsorships of the K-Kids Club at Painted Rock Elementary School, the Builders Club at Twin Peaks Middle School and the Key Club at Poway High School. We recently chartered the Abraxas Aktion Club for developmentally disabled adults and reactivated the Circle K Club at Cal State San Marcos.
Our major fundraiser is the annual Padres Spring Training Kickoff Dinner, held each February. Check out our short video from the 2016 event.
We also sponsor the Keg & Cork event each August to raise money for our signature service project, "Holiday with Heroes".
