Over the past 25 years, The Kiwanis Club of Ottawa West has supported the youth of our community through the donation of thousands of dollars and volunteer hours.

All proceeds generated from our fundraising efforts are returned directly to support child and youth programs in the community. Today’s youth are the leaders of tomorrow. We believe our community must provide all children the opportunity for reaching their full potential.

We are only able to continue giving our support to those in need through the generosity of people such as you. There are three ways in which you can participate – the Silent Auction and/or Sponsorship and/or Ticket Purchases. These options are explained in more detail below. Please contact me if you wish to participate in our fundraising initiatives. I can be reached at 613.794.8796 or via email at

Thank you for helping us support the youth of our community.

Kathy Jones
President, Kiwanis Club of Ottawa West
