Fundraiser to be Held to Support Regional Science Fair
The Fort Myers Kiwanis Club is to hold the Kool Science Event fundraiser on May 8, 2014 from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at The Edison restaurant located at 3583 McGregor Boulevard in Fort Myers. Proceeds from the event will help to fund the Thomas Alva Edison Kiwanis Science and Engineering Fair.
The Kool Science Event will include buffet dinner and silent auction. Tickets are $58 per person or $464 for a table of eight, and must be purchased in advance at www.koolscienceevent.com or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1.
The Fort Myers Kiwanis Club annually supports the Thomas Alva Edison Kiwanis Science and Engineering Fair by providing volunteer staff and fundraising to pay in excess of $15,000 for travel expenses of winners to the state and international competitions, scholarships, trophies and other awards at the local level. The fair is tied to the Edison Festival of Light Celebration, and more than 20,000 middle school and high school students in Lee and Charlotte Counties participate each year.
“In addition to learning about their specific project, students learn logic, scientific method, organizational skills, creativity and presentation skills,” said Nathan Fred Shaw of the Fort Myers Kiwanis Club, “We are counting on the public to help support our fundraisers or become a sponsor to keep the fair going for our local students.”
The Fort Myers Kiwanis Club is a community service organization that meets every Wednesday at noon at Kiwanis Hall located at 2nd Street and Woodford Avenue.
