Who Benefits?

Net proceeds from the event will benefit the Appleton-Fox Cities Kiwanis’ signature project that provides iPads with custom software and funding for children with autism of families in need. These iPads are often the only way children can effectively communicate with their parents and teachers. The need is great in the Appleton-Fox Cities and surrounding communities.

The Appleton-Fox Cities Kiwanis organization raises funds year-round for numerous children-focused non-profit organizations that need our support so they can focus on the services they provide.
