Our primary fund raising event is the Kiwanis Annual Benefit Auction & Wine Tasting.  The annual event is held the first Sunday in May and typically raises $40,000 – $60,000 for the communities of North Lake Tahoe including Tahoe City, Truckee and Kings Beach. This year, we’re taking the event virtual with a Toast to Our Community and on-line auction on May 2nd, 2021.  We are looking forward to next year, when we can resume our in-person event at Sunnyside Restaurant & Lodge!
