It is the time of year where our Kiwanis club has a Vidalia onion fundraising drive to be able to award scholarships to high school seniors. We pre-sell ten pound bags for $12 or 3 bags for $30 and the onions arrive around mid-May. If you enjoy Vidalia’s and would be interested in pre-ordering, please reply back to me with the quantity I will contact you when they arrive. Our pre-sale goes thru April 30th.
We try and award scholarships beginning at the $1000 level and have awarded over $100,000 in scholarships during my short membership in Kiwanis. Our club has a goal of selling 2,500 bags this year and I have a goal of selling 160 bags, enough to fund one scholarship!
If you are interested in supporting a good cause and enjoy Vidalia onions, please consider buying 3 bags for $30 and selling or giving two bags away to your family, friends, neighbors, or those at the office! Please help me load out my pickup truck for a worthy cause!!
Again, thank you so much for making an investment into the lives of our youth!! I know you are going to enjoy these farm, fresh Vidalia’s this year!
The North Gwinnett Kiwanis Club has a long history of giving back to our community. Throughout the recent years, we have provided to area school kids in support of their community projects, leadership programs, and scholarships for local high school students. In fact, over the past six years, we have awarded over $75,000 in scholarships to high school students. This year, thanks to the tremendous community response to our annual fundraising events such as the Father/Daughter Dance in the Winter, Golf Tournament in the Fall, and our Vidalia Onion Sale in the Spring, our annual amount will be between $16,000 and $20,000 in scholarship awards. We are proud to partner with the four High School Key Clubs that we sponsor at Mill Creek, Buford, North Gwinnett and Lanier. All of these Kiwanis organizations sell Vidalia onions and receive a share of the profits in support of their respective community service projects and we are thrilled to support these clubs, their faculty advisers, and their student leaders!
