This annual Fall event brings together East Meadow’s SLPs and their Kiwanis sponsor for an afternoon of fun, food, fellowship and fundraising.
This year, Kiwanis Club Project co-chairs VP Kevin and Lori Kamper added several new twists - glow-in-the dark bowling and the club with the most attendees would select which of the four Kiwanis charities would receive half the proceeds. In addition, the lane with the highest single game average would select the Kiwanis charity that would receive the other half of the proceeds.
The Bowling Green K-Kids won the right to select the charity for the first half of the proceeds by just beating out East Meadow High School Key Club by one attendee.
The K-Kids in attendance were asked to vote and they selected the Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Center (KPTC) as their charity of choice.
When Faculty Advisor LtG-Elect Rich Santer asked the K-Kids why they selected KPTC, K-Kids president Aline said, “KPTC President DPG Joe Corace comes to so many of our events even the ones that aren’t for KPTC. After we make a donation, he always comes to say thank you and recognize our club.”
KPTC will receive a donation of approximately $300.
The right to select the charity for the second half of the proceeds went to a lane of East Meadow Kiwanians who selected Kamp Kiwanis as their charity.
