About Fundraising

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!

Pediatric Trauma Program

Pediatric Trauma remains the leading cause of death and injury among children ages 14 and under in the United States. The mission of the Pediatric Trauma Program (PTP) is to develop local projects which will reduce the number of children who are killed or injured by trauma, ensuring all children live happy, healthy and safe lives. Funds are directed towards promoting community outreach, assisting partner hospitals, and providing advanced medical training for doctors. Ultimately, the goal of PTP is to prevent unintentional injury and death and to provide safety items for children around the world.

Kiwanis Family House

The Kiwanis Family House seeks to provide temporary housing and support for families of severely ill or injured children being treated at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, CA or at Shriners Hospital. This low-cost housing can be especially important for families who must frequently travel long distances for treatment or must accommodate for extended treatment periods. Funds raised for this cause help to provide additional resources and to provide convenient, restful, secure, and low cost temporary housing for these families so that they may support their loved ones.


UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child in everything they do. Together with their partners, UNICEF works in 190 countries to provide aid to the children of the world, especially those facing circumstances of poverty, disease, violence, and discrimination. This aid comes in the form of food, immunizations, general healthcare and even education. Ultimately, UNICEF advocates for measures to give children the best start in life, recognizing that proper care in childhood forms the strongest foundation for a successful future.

Thomas House Family Shelter

The Thomas House Family Shelter, located in Garden Grove, California, is an organization that temporarily houses homeless families with children, providing a safe and positive environment to allow these families to stay together during the toughest of times. Additionally, the Thomas House empowers families to become self-sufficient and provides the services necessary for these families to attain permanent housing. Sheltering approximately 150 people per year, this organization and its programs have made a significant impact on our community.

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a non-profit organization exclusively dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mental disorders and those impacted by suicide. This year, all proceeds from Change Thru Games: Level 4 will go directly towards the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. For more information, visit their webpage.

Crazy Kompetition for Infants (CKI) South

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


Club Event

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 (DFAC)

Club Event

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
