Collectively, the California-Nevada-Hawaii District supports three different organizations through our fundraising endeavors. These District Fundraising Initiatives (DFIs) are the Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP), the Kiwanis Family House (KFH), and UNICEF. Additionally, our home club of UC Irvine Circle K supports one local organization, the Thomas House Family Shelter, through our own fundraising efforts.
Fundraising events are events that Circle K members attend to raise money for a variety of charitable programs. It is a great way to meet new people from all across the Circle K universe while helping a good cause!
Stanton Park | District Event
Crazy Kompetition for Infants (CKI) is an annual event that raises money for Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) through a series of fun, competitive mini-games and relays. CKI South attracts Circle K clubs from all around Southern California and Nevada to have fun and support a great cause.
"CKI South is an amazing event that brings together the ENTIRE southern half of the CNH District to play games in a collective effort to fundraise. The games change every year and offer solid, team-building challenges that allow people to grow closer to one another. It is an event that I look forward to every year because of all the fun and excitement it provides." - Michael Acasio
Mr. CKI is a non-traditional beauty pageant that you would never expect featuring some of the most talented guys CKI has to offer. Dressed as Nintendo characters this year, contestants displayed their best moves, talents, and skills all for charity, raising over $2,000 for the Kiwanis Family House.
Dance for a Chance is a six-hour dance marathon hosted by UC Irvine Circle K. In addition to six hours of dancing, Dance for a Chance also features everything from food to face painting and even live performances from some of UC Irvine's most talented dance crews. The best part about Dance for a Chance is that it's also a fundraiser, and all of the proceeds of the event will be donated to the Thomas House Family Shelter.
"Dance for a Chance allows the club to come together to work on a large-scale fundraising project. It promotes service while allowing its participants to have fun on the dance floor with their friends. It helps foster our UCI Circle K community, but also the Irvine community at large." - Joyce Wang
