When?Start time: Saturday 4:30pm (04 August)
End time: Saturday 9:30pm (04 August)
Active 20-30 Club International develops leaders and serves the needs of children in nearly 50 clubs coast-to-coast, Canada, Mexico, and Central America. Each chapter or club is locally run by a volunteer board of directors and members focused on serving the unique needs of their local communities.
The Topeka Chapter is known as one of the most influential clubs in North America due to its fundraising total from their Children’s Charity Gala & Benefit Auction. Past Presidents of the Topeka Chapter include former Mayor Bill Bunten, Jim Nellis, Greg Schwerdt, Gary Yager, John Dicus, John McGivern, John Federico, Scott Gales, Justin Glasgow and many more men who have helped shape Topeka in many ways.
Each club has its own particular focus and the Topeka Chapter has a focus on at-risk youth in Topeka and Shawnee County. Since the inaugural gala in 1999, over $2.3 million has been raised and given back to 55 different community non-profits such as the Boys and Girls Club, CASA, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Harvesters, and Topeka Rescue Mission to name a few. Along with those non-profits, the Topeka Chapter has also given out over 10,000 coats to kids in Shawnee county.
The annual black tie benefit auction and gala is the Topeka charitable event of the year.
