Kiwanis Club Golf Challenge benefits Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program

July 14, 2021 — On Saturday, the Kiwanis Club of Florence hosted its third annual Kiwanis Club Golf Challenge at Florence Golf Links. More than 25 volunteers and 100 golfers participated.

“Thank you to our sponsors and everyone who came out to play in our tournament. This will help us fund our projects over the next year to help Florence's whole community and our children’s programs as well,” said Kiwanis President Megan Messmer.

These programs include funding the Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program (KDCCP,) along with other local projects benefitting the area’s youth.

In addition, Kiwanis is resuming in-person meetings today, July 14, at noon at the Siuslaw Valley Fire and Rescue Station at 2625 Highway 101.
