The Kiwanis Club of Berlin holds scholarship fundraiser

The Kiwanis Club of Berlin is a service organization of caring men and women from all walks of life. Their objective is to bring aid to children in need, primarily in the communities of Berlin, Gorham and Milan.

The Berlin Kiwanis Club will hold a scholarship fundraiser at 6:30 p.m. Friday, May 4, at Fratello’s Restaurant, 155 Dow St., Manchester.

This event will bring together former residents of Berlin who have a shared connection for the city and want to give something back to the community. The fundraiser’s goal is to introduce local residents who are originally from Berlin and “pay it forward” by helping current Berlin students further their education.

The event will feature a keynote address by Dennis “Red” Gendron, assistant coach of men’s hockey at Yale University. The evening also will include a performance by LogJam.

This event will raise funds for Berlin Kiwanis Club annual scholarship. Minimum donation is $40 per person for dinner. There will be a cash bar. Tickets are available at www.berlinnatives.wordpress.com. For more information, contact Rachelle Beaudoin at 391-2145 or rachelle.beaudoin@gmail.com.
