Since 2004, the club has provided a Christmas gift to every child at Manatee Elementary School, personally presented by Santa and Mrs. Claus. This year the tradition goes on and this event will help lead the way!
Santa and Mrs. Claus will be on hand to welcome the guests while a waitstaff of elves will serve a delicious brunch, complete with a tasty mimosa. Get ready to sing your favorite Christmas carols led by local entertainment sensation Rosetta Stone. Whether you are an angel we have heard on high or more like Alvin and the Chipmunks, all voices are welcome! The day will be one of fabulous food, fun and the spirit of giving.
Proceeds from the brunch will help with the purchase of toys for our local children. This year, more than ever because of the effects and aftermath of Hurricane Irma, many children may not have the opportunity to experience the magic and joy of the holiday season without the help of the Kiwanis Club. Please be a part of the Kiwanis International mission to improve the world, one child and one community at a time, by starting right here, right now with our own community.
Tickets for the brunch are $30 and must be purchased in advance. Seating is limited, so please do not hesitate! Please contact Kiwanis Club of Marco Island, President Kathleen Reynolds at 239-394- 0459 to sign up today!
If you are unable to attend the brunch, but would still like to support this wonderful cause, you may send a donation to the Kiwanis Club of Marco Island, P.O. Box 2014, Marco Island, FL, 34146 with the special notation, “Toys For Kids.” Mark your calendars for more fun as well on December 10 at Stan’s in Goodland for a 50-50 fundraiser to support Kiwanis Toys For Kids.
