The Kiwanis Club of Allentown’s 100th Anniversary Gala will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018, from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the Seegers Union Building on the Muhlenberg College campus in Allentown. Our club was chartered in March, 1918 and is one of the oldest Kiwanis Clubs in Pennsylvania.
If you are not familiar with Kiwanis, it is an international service organization founded in 1915. It has grown to over 8,000 clubs in 87 countries with over 700,000 adult and youth members. Each year, Kiwanis sponsors nearly 150,000 service projects, and raises over $100 million for causes that primarily benefit children and their families.
Over the past century, the Kiwanis Club of Allentown has provided thousands of volunteer hours to service projects that benefit children in our community. Since 1952, our Foundation has provided over $1 million in grants and scholarships to non-profit organizations and deserving students. Our club currently sponsors Key Clubs at William Allen, Allentown Central Catholic and Salisbury High Schools. We also sponsor a Builder’s Club at the Raub Middle School and K-Kids Clubs at the Washington and Ramos Elementary Schools. These clubs help students develop leadership skills, and focus on school and community service.
