Masquerade Ball, originally hosted by UCSD Circle K, is an annual fundraiser that is held to supports one of California-Nevada-Hawaii Circle K's District Fundraising Initiatives (DFIs) and is one of the biggest fundraising events in the organization. Since 2007, members from all over CNH Circle K District have enjoyed a fun night of dancing, entertaining activities, and bonding with friends.
For the first time ever, the 22nd Annual Masquerade Ball will be co-hosted by La Jolla Kiwanis and UCSD Circle K. The event will be the first joint-fundraiser between the two branches of the Kiwanis Family, giving members from both branches the opportunity to intermingle and raise money for a good cause. This year, Masquerade Ball will be supporting the Trevor Project.
NOTE: This event is only for Kiwanis members, Circle K International members, and approved guests.
