Kiwanis Christmas tree lot open at Juanita Beach Park
With Christmas just around the corner, the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland is gearing up for its biggest fundraiser of the year.
Since 1971, the club has sold Christmas trees, wreaths, gourmet nuts and Sees Candy with all funds going to support the children of the Kirkland community.
For the second year, the tree lot will be located in the parking lot at Juanita Beach Park. It opened Nov. 29 and will stay open until Dec. 23 or until the trees are gone. Last year the club sold out early.
All of the net proceeds go to programs designed to assist children in the Kirkland community including: KITH, March of Dimes, Music in the Park, Student Scholarships, Special Olympics, What's Next Bowlers, Adopt-a-Highway, Scouting, Kiwanis Camp Casey, Eastside Baby Corner, Kirkland Easter Egg Hunt and the Kirkland Teen Union Building.
Proceeds will also benefit the Eliminate Project, a joint effort between Kiwanis and UNESCO, whose goal is to eliminate neonatal tetanus that kills so many tiny newborns around the world.
