The Kiwanis Strike It Rich Party is the most fun annual event in New Smyrna Beach! Come on out for dancing, dinner, open bar, and a chance to win $10,000. All net proceeds go to kids the children and teachers of SouthEast Volusia. This is the Kiwanis biggest fund-raiser. Last year they donated over $40,000 to kids and teachers in SEV.
Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Local clubs look out for our communities and the international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty.
We are creative with our ideas. Whether rolling up our sleeves or opening our wallets, Kiwanians make transformative changes in communities around the world. On average, members of the Kiwanis family host approximately 150,000 service projects and complete more than 18 million service hours a year. Every year, our clubs raise more than US$100 million to support community causes — in addition to supporting the Kiwanis Children’s Fund.
Kiwanians have a smile so big, you could say it stretches more than a hundred years. What started as a way to bring people together for the greater good has grown into a global network of do-gooders — connected by a love of people and possibilities.
Kiwanis International is organized into clubs, divisions, districts and international. This multi-leveled leadership hierarchy means members are supported by a larger network of leaders who are prepared to help clubs be successful while improving communities.
