In golf scores, it’s never good to be “over.” But for our sixth annual KidWorks Classic Golf Tournament held in May at the Pelican Hill Golf Course in Newport Beach, we were “over” all expectations in terms of fundraising for our proggrams, setting a new record of $270,000 net raised to support our College Success Initiative.
Each December, a hustle and bustle of activities happen at KidWorks to help make Christmas merry and bright for the students and families of KidWorks.
The festivities kicked-off with a Christmas decorating party held by the employees of BBVA Compass, US Bank and Wells Fargo at all four KidWorks centers. This tradition started several years ago when our friends and corporate partner, US Bank started decorating the KidWorks centers and this year BBVA Compass and Wells Fargo lent their help to the festivities. When our students returned to KidWorks after Thanksgiving Break they were greeted with Christmas cheer.
The celebrating doesn't stop there, now that December is in full swing there are a myriad of activities taking place at KidWorks this month. We welcome members of the community to participate in all that's happening this season.
KidWorks Love in Music Concert (12/09 @ 1pm. Free)

KidWorks Christmas Store/Toy Drive (12/13 & 12/19 - times vary):
Volunteers and toys are needed at our KidWorks Christmas Store this December. Each year we collect hundreds of gifts for our Annual Christmas Store. To provide our parents the joy of purchasing Christmas gifts for their children, the toys are made available at 10% of their retail value and the proceeds from the store then go to a benevolence fund to assist the neediest of KidWorks families throughout the year.
