WelcomeThe Kiwanis Club of Columbia is among the most established service clubs in the Midlands of South Carolina.
Each year, we support charities throughout the Midlands, both with our labor and financially. Our primary fundraiser is an annual golf tournament. In 2013, through proceeds from the golf tournament, we raised $10,000 for the Ray Tanner Foundation.
Additionally, we support and sponsor the University of South Carolina Circle-K Club, two local high school Key Clubs, and "Terrific Kids" programs at several elementary schools. We strongly encourage inter-club participation from members of the other Kiwanis Clubs in our area.
For information about joining the Kiwanis Club of Columbia, or just to attend a lunch meeting as a guest, contact any member or send us an email by using the Contact Us form.
The next meeting will be 12:30 p.m., Thursday, November 14, 2013 at the Capital City Club. We welcome Leslie Tetreault from the Richland Library as our guest speaker.
Join us on December 12, 2013 for our club Christmas Party at the Palmetto Club. We look forward to seeing you there!
