The Kiwanis Club of Ahwatukee is a group of your friends and neighbors working as a small part of Kiwanis International, the global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one community and one child at a time. Come join us!
Your local Kiwanis Club performs many service projects in Phoenix and in its surrounding areas. If you are interested in participating in community service or helping children in need, we encourage you to learn about us here on our site or at a club meeting. We meet almost every Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m. Please read on for details.
Our club is very pleased to announce that we have assumed greater responsibility in the planning and execution of The Festival of Lights Golf Tournament. That prestigious event will occur this year on Saturday, June 1st at the Foothills Golf Course. We are seeking a maximum of 144 golfers to participate individually or in foursomes for the 7:30 a.m. scramble. The cost to single golfers is just $100. Foursomes pay only $300! Proceeds from this event will benefit The Kiwanis Club of Ahwatukee, the Prostate Cancer Foundation and the Festival of Lights.
We are seeking hole sponsors for the tournament. You may sponsor a hole for $150 (first come, first served if you would like a particular hole). Call Angela Ashley (480-221-6964) to arrange hole sponsorship.
We are also accepting raffle donations. All sponsorships or donations of $150 or more will be acknowledged in our weekly club newsletter and through a link on this site through 2013.
Please use the Hole Sponsor or Raffle Donation link to the right of this page to contribute.
You may use the Festival of Lights Golf Tournament link on our Links page to enter the tournament and/or sign up for the wine tasting event on Saturday evening, June 1st.
