Congratulations to our Club Spotlight for the month of September, the Kiwanis Club of Tysons, VA!
"In addition to a full slate of ad-hoc service projects this year, the Kiwanis Club of Tysons resumed its Safe Sitter babysitter training in full force which was submitted to KI as a Signature Project having graduated now over 1000 students since they began the project. They helped support the new Kiwanis Club of Haymarket/Gainesville by inviting them to partner on their annual summer fundraiser -- concessions at 8 concerts at Jiffy Lube Live. The club celebrated its 25th anniversary as a Kiwanis club this June with the official announcement that they are launching their first massive-scale fundraising project, an annual Kiwanis Polar Dip event in Reston, Virginia on February 10th, 2024. This event, previously named the Virginia Polar Dip benefiting Camp Sunshine has raised $1,000,000 in its previous 18 year run. The club has done a couple of large meal-packing projects for Food for Others this year and has also increased its membership by 30% so far with a few more prospects still in the pipeline. They continue to support an impressive 9 service leadership programs."
