Christmas With Kiwanis

The holiday spirit was alive and well as the Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates gathered members and guests for the first annual Christmas With Kiwanis wine tasting fundraiser at the Palos Verdes Bay Club on December 3rd. Sixty-five attendees were treated to an evening of delightful food, fine wines, and the chance to make a difference in their community.

Wine enthusiasts were in for a treat as Susan Brooks, the personal wine ambassador from the esteemed Boisset Collection of fine wines, guided attendees through a tasting journey. The carefully curated selection of wines added a sophisticated touch to the event, enhancing the overall experience for all who attended.

Entertaining Friend’s Jean Cordero took charge of the culinary experience, crafting a menu that delighted the senses and added a touch of gourmet flair to the festive occasion. The air was filled with the enchanting melodies of Richard Sherman, creating a harmonious backdrop for an evening of joy and camaraderie.

The highlight of the evening was the silent auction, which featured a one-week stay at a charming cottage in Cork, Ireland. Bidders eagerly participated in a friendly competition for the chance to escape to the scenic beauty of Ireland, creating an atmosphere of excitement and generosity. The auction not only added an element of thrill to the event but also served as a vital means of raising funds for Kiwanis’ charitable endeavors.

The funds raised during the wine tasting fundraiser will contribute to Kiwanis of Rolling Hills Estates’ commitment to supporting the underserved children and young adults of our community. This inaugural event marks the beginning of a new tradition for Kiwanis, showcasing their dedication to making a positive impact during the holiday season and beyond.

Benefit Concert

Concerts are shared with various children groups. Tickets are provided courtesy of the Kiwanis and supported by the Key Club members.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to thank the club for the concert support every year. When I am looking at 400 tickets on my dresser it is comforting to know that I can count on the club. The Boys & Girls Club was there as well as Volunteers of America members. I had wonderful e-mails from them after the show.

I can’t believe the turnout for the concert is larger every year with attendance of 400 people raising well over $10,000.

Next year will be benefit concert #50 on September 20, 2014 at the Armstrong. Please save the date. It will be special and emotional.

Thanks so much for your support every year. We are back at the Holiday Inn on Thursday and Terranea on Saturday as usual.”
