With Christmas approaching quickly, the Kiwanis Club of Kirkland is gearing up for their biggest fundraiser of the year.  Since 1971, the club has sold Christmas trees, Wreaths, Gourmet Nuts, Delicious Delights and See’s Candy with all funds going to support the children of the Kirkland community.

The tree lot is located in the parking lot of Juanita Beach Park.  It opens Friday, November 27 (the day after Thanksgiving) and will stay open until December 23 or until the trees are gone.  Last year things sold out early, so be sure not to wait too long!

Tree Lot hours will be 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

All of the net proceeds go to programs designed to assist children in our community.  They include:  Attain Housing, Key Club leadership conventions, Student Scholarships, Special Olympics, What’s Next Bowlers, Scouting, Kiwanis Camp Casey, Eastside Baby Corner, Kirkland Easter Egg Hunt, Kirkland Teen Union Building (KTUB), Boys and Girls Club and others.  They will also benefit the Eliminate Project, a joint effort between Kiwanis and UNICEF, whose goal is to eliminate neonatal tetanus that kills so many tiny newborns around the world.
