BULLHEAD CITY — Dot Foods has donated $1,000 to the Kiwanis Club of the Colorado River, also known as Noon Kiwanis, as club members continue preparing for their Wine and Jazz fundraiser on Saturday, June 23 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Bullhead City Area Chamber of Commerce building, 1251 Highway 95. 

The company is a major sponsor of this event.

“We make it a priority to give back to the community in a lot of different ways,” said Michael Griffiths, Dot’s human resources manager. “That’s why we try to find the best opportunities to make a splash in the community.” 

This Kiwanis group is known for organizing an annual Easter Egg Hunt at Davis Camp and for handing out candy during the community’s Trunk-or-Treat on Halloween, as well as participating in other local program for youths, such as Backpack Buddies, Boys and Girls Club and the American Youth Soccer Organization. 

Kiwanis also awards scholarships and recognizes students who improve their marks through programs such as Bring Up Grades Successfully.

“There are a lot of things our club has been instrumental with,” said Sherry Quinn, who is organizing the upcoming fundraiser. “We are interested in anything for kids, the development of kids.”

Wine and Jazz is a return to a fundraiser the group offered in the past. 

Tickets are still on sale to spend an evening sampling wines and beers, hearing live music and participating in a silent auction. The event helps the Kiwanis Club of the Colorado River (Noon Club), pay for its various efforts to improve the lives of children.

Entry is $25 per person. People can reserve tables for 10 for $250.

The group also is looking for items for the silent auction.

Kiwanis is a nonprofit organization. Quinn added that financial support and donations assist the club in making lives better for the community’s children.
