2022 An Evening with Kiwanis for Kids

Held on September 29th, 2022 at the John S. Knight Center in Akron, Ohio, An Evening with Kiwanis for Kids was a spectacular night in which we all came together in recognizing Akron school educators, celebrating student and community supporters, and promoting youth service leadership clubs throughout Akron-area schools by becoming a supporter and helping us promote the club's mission of Building Leaders One Child at a Time. A special thanks to our sponsors, with whom we could not have held such a wonderful event. If you were unable to join us, you can see images and information from the evening below.
