Dot Foods donates to Kiwanis fundraiser | News - Mohave Valley News

BULLHEAD CITY — The Kiwanis Club of the Colorado River does a lot of good things for the community.

Things like the annual Easter egg hunt at Davis Camp, the annual Trunk

or Treat Halloween event at Gary Keith Civic Center Park, scholarships for area students, contributions to, participation in or partnerships with the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Colorado River, the BHHS Legacy Foundation and The Salvation Army.

To sponsor and participate in those things requires the club to expend resources. In order to raise those resources, the club accepts donations and conducts fundraising events.

A donation Monday to one of those fundraising events gave the club a good start on its next money-making venture.

Dot Foods on Monday presented Kiwanis representatives a check for $1,000 to sponsor the upcoming Wine & Jazz fundraiser to be held Sept. 7 at Anderson Auto Group Fieldhouse in Bullhead City. Kiwanis and Dot Foods representatives got together Monday afternoon for presentation of a ceremonial check — and a real one, too.

Wine & Jazz is set for 6 p.m. on Sept. 7 and, like its name implies, feature wine-tasting and jazz. There also will be hors d’oeuvres, dancing, a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.

“We’re excited to have Dot Foods as a sponsor again this year,” said Marilyn Leisure, a Kiwanis member who is helping publicize the event. “This event is one of our club’s fundraisers where all ticket sales and all proceeds from this event will directly benefit the youth of our area.”

Tickets are $30 each or $240 for a reserved table of eight.
