Signature Fundraisers

Kiwanis raises important funds to help kids and others in need through our many signature projects and community donations. All proceeds of our signature fundraisers support Kiwanis projects and programs right here in our local community.

Cow Chip Raffle (“Cow Plop”) – November

For just $10, you can purchase a one square yard “Plop Plot” of our cow chip raffle pasture. Two cows will be turned out to pasture and the owners of the plots where the cows drop the first two “true plops” will win a cash prize. Proceeds support the Kiwanis Foundation of Meriden and Kiwanis’ annual education awards for graduating high school seniors.

Kiwanis Komedy Night – March

Kiwanis Komedy Night provides some great laughs as we raise money for children in our community. Join us for a night of fun with three outstanding comedians, a silent auction, and a 50/50 drawing.
