The Model Key Club Provides Assistance to the Richmond Kiwanis Club in their effort to raise funds to support community projects.


Model School Key Club Assists
Kiwanis 2010 Annual Roadblock

Three members of the Model School Key Club pose before they work at the annual Kiwanis Roadblock for Kids. They are (l.to r.) Drew Dison, Allia Vaez, and Amy Dong, President of the Key Club.

This year the various participants raised slightly in excess of $1,000 which was donated to the City of Richmond Parks and Recreation Department to support the annual Halloween event for children. The city had decided to do away with this event due to a budget shortfall, so the Kiwanis Club of Richmond stepped in to become a major sponsor of the annual Richmond Halloween Hoe Down which will be held from 2 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, October 23.
