1 How did this event start?

“The Muskogee County Lions Club was looking for a fundraising event, and some of our members attended the Kiwanis Chili luncheon to help support their club. While talking to Kiwanis President Oscar Field we discovered that they could use some help, so the partnership was born.”

“To raise funds for the Muskogee County Lions Club to support the: Oklahoma School for the Blind, Muskogee County 4-H Club, Muskogee Junior Achievement and Muskogee High School Science Fair. The following projects are supported by the Muskogee Kiwanis Club: Boy Scouts at the Oklahoma School for the Blind, Kiwanis Kids Fishing Derby and Picnic for Camp Bennett attendees. Other children’s projects upon request.”

3 Will there be food besides chili?

“No, only our homestyle chili with all of the trimmings.”

4  Are donations being accepted?

“Yes, there will be a donation box and a couple of raffle items.”

5 Why are the two groups doing this together?

“For more support in putting on the luncheon and hopefully to raise more funding.”
