During Free Comic Book Day at Cartoon Kingdom on May 6, 2017, Kiwanis Club of Windsor’s Pearl Davies revealed to Eyes On Windsor that they have been selected as this year’s Windsor Comicon beneficiary.
“We are thrilled to have been selected as the official beneficiary for Windsor ComiCon,” says Kiwanis Club of Windsor President, Dan Inverarity. “It’s literally heroes helping heroes to benefit children in our community!”
To mark this occasion (and community partnership going forward), Kiwanis Sunshine Point Camp will begin hosting ComiCon Themed Events at every weekly camp during the Summer. “In addition to teaching kids that often never get a chance to go to camp, we will promote literacy through reading, acting and expressing themselves via ComiCon Themed Events and activities,” says Kiwanis Club of Windsor Treasurer, Pearl Davies.
The Kiwanis Club will be presented with a monetary gift on the final day of the Winsor ComiCon (Sunday, August 13, 2017) while receiving the opportunity to use the event as a promotional platform to both gain and enhance community awareness of its programs and services.
“We are excited to enable opportunities for children in the community through the Kiwanis Sunshine Point Camp,” says General Manager Colin Douglas.
During Free Comic Book Day, Cartoon Kingdom was packed with people! Cartoon Kingdom had recently announced their partnership as Multiverse, Platinum, Title and Presenting Sponsor of Windsor ComiCon 2017. To celebrate they held random draws every hour giving away free passes to Windsor ComiCon!
For 65 years, Kiwanis Club of Windsor through its Kiwanis Sunshine Point Camp has been offering an enriching experience for children from Windsor & Essex County.
