All proceeds from ticket sales at $10 each were donated to Christmas Cheer and the Salvation Army.
“Both of these charities do so much for families at this time of year and throughout the year. It is very fitting for the Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore to do this event and donate the proceeds to each of them. Each organization received $3,192 from the sale of the 635 tickets and donations”, said David Shier, President of the Kiwanis Club of Lakeshore.
“Without our sponsors, supporters, entertainers (donating their time and talent), volunteers and patrons this event is not possible and each of them share in the success of this event and can take pride in knowing that their efforts will be putting a smile on many faces this Christmas and throughout the upcoming year”, he said.
