Tehachapi Kiwanians donate to the local Salvation Army’s after-school program, help host Breakfast With Santa, raise funds for Coats for Kids, grant scholarships to local high school seniors, put on the local Prayer Breakfast on National Day of Prayer (May 4), donate personalized books for kindergarten children, support the local Key Club (a high school organization sponsored by Kiwanis International), and much more.

This event is a great way to have a fun evening on the town while helping Kiwanis at the same time.

These tickets are then sold by the charitable organization for a price they set and they get to keep all the money they raise. Visit tctonstage.com to apply for tickets for your organization.
