Kiwanis Club of Kirkland tree lot a huge success | Letter

Thank you to the Kirkland community for supporting a good cause.

The Kirkland community and surrounding neighborhoods came through once again this holiday season in its support of the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland’s Christmas tree lot.

The lot opened the day after Thanksgiving and officially sold its last tree on Dec. 17, 2017, raising about $30,000 after expenses. The Kiwanis Club is grateful to the community for the loyalty and support it has shown over the years.

The Kiwanis Club is one of the oldest and largest service organizations in Kirkland with close to 90 members. All proceeds from fundraisers like the Christmas tree lot go directly to children and families in need, as well as student scholarships, Attain Housing, Eastside Baby Corner and many other charitable causes. The club also sponsors leadership groups in local junior high and high schools, known as Builder’s Club and Key Club, and helps support the YMCA Kirkland Teen Union Building. These groups offer leadership and mentoring, impacting hundreds of teens in your community.  

If you would like more information about this all volunteer nonprofit organization, please contact club secretary Tom Pendergrass at twpende@gmail.com or visit www.kirkland.kiwanis.org. Happy New year to the Kirkland Community and thanks again for all your support!

Bonni Sundberg,

Kiwanis Club of Kirkland
