Kiwanis thanks community

To the Editor,
On behalf of the Kiwanis Club of Westfield, I am writing to express my warmest gratitude toward the members of the Greater Westfield community. The Kiwanis Club wrapped up its major yearly fundraiser last night, and by all accounts, it was a tremendous success. After months of planning, adjusting, worrying, and working, our club completed its annual auction – venturing into the world of online auctions for the first time.

The Kiwanis Auction has been a local tradition since its debut in 1969, first as a radio auction, and then, later as a televised auction. The Kiwanis TV Auction has been a familiar part of the landscape in our area for more than 20 years. However, like just about everything else in our world, the 2021 auction looked very different from past years as a result of the pandemic.

Our faithful donors, sponsors, and bidders showed us once again why Westfield is such an amazing community. Our shift to an online format was a success, with hundreds of bidders competing for more than 300 items. We met our goals and will be able to continue to support the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield, Little League, scholarships, and other charitable organizations in town.

With tremendous gratitude, I am moved by the support of the businesses and people in Westfield, Southwick, and other local communities. I encourage anyone who is interested in learning more about our club to visit www.westfieldkiwanis.org.
