Hosted by the Florida CKI Alumni Association
Friday, August 5th at 8:30pm
The celebration will feature a comedy “roast” of Florida Kiwanis Governor Harvey and Governor-Elect Sharon All proceeds will benefit the Florida CKI Alumni Association Scholarship Program
The proceeds from the Roast will benefit the Scholarship program and help to endow scholarships. We are currently working to endow the “Uncle” Don Knowles Scholarship:
At the 2007 Florida Circle K District Convention, the “Uncle” Don Knowles scholarship was created in honor of one of the Florida District’s biggest supporters. A 22 year member of the Sunshine City Kiwanis club in St. Petersburg, “Uncle” Don began his involvement with Circle K in 1985 at the USF St. Petersburg Kiwanis advisor. He was the first Assistant Administrator for the Florida District of CKI in 1989.Throughout the years, “Uncle” Don has been honored with deserved awards such at the Florida District Circle of Service Award, the International Circle of Service Award as well as being inducted into the Florida CKI Hall of Fame in 1997. He became known to all as “Uncle” Don Knowles, which is quite appropriate. He has definitely lived up to his title as being an “Uncle” to each and every member of the Florida CKI. When starting his Kiwanis career, he immediately became involved in sponsored youth and he says that not a day goes by that he doesn’t do something with one of his sponsored youth clubs – and he LOVES it! The Florida District Alumni Association awards a $1000 scholarship in his honor to a deserving Circle K member who demonstrates both scholarship and contributes service to the community.
