Welcome  to  Kiwanis de Amigos

We are a service organization serving the children of the greater Tucson
community. We meet every Tuesday at the local IHOP

Our annual Kiwanis de Amigos Rattlesnake Run, a premier cross country event for middle schoolers, will be held this year on September 10 at Christoper Columbus Park. You can click here for more information. 

On Saturday July 23 the Kiwanis de Amigos hosted a Bowling Blast for the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Tucson at the Golden Pin Bowling Lanes. Over 50 "Bigs" and their "Littles" enjoyed bowling along with prizes, pizza and cake. It was great fun for everyone, here are a few pictures from the event.

That kid just realized how old Bob is.
