If you know of someone who is in a civic organization it's time to say thanks.

The oldest and largest Kiwanis Club in Sioux Falls, (Kiwanis Club of Sioux Falls) has raised over $500,000 over the years to support local organizations that work with children. We raise funds through our Kiwanis Pancake House at the Empire Fair and by sponsors that support the work we do for local children in need.

This year, the Kiwanis Club of Sioux Falls, will be handing out $21,500 to 13 organizations on May 7th at our regular scheduled meeting, which starts at noon and ends at 1pm.

The meeting is held at the Royal Fork, just south of Macy’s at the Empire Mall.
