Posted by Marjorie Young on Jul 30, 2018
The Rotary Club of Skidaway Island and the Kiwanis Club of Skidaway hosted “A Nashville Night,” benefiting the Savannah Early Childhood Foundation (SECF) on Wednesday, July 18.

The fundraiser featured the Michael and Jennifer McLain Bluegrass Band and a live auction to benefit the SECF. Over 200 tickets were sold, and in combination with items auctioned, the event raised $11,000 for the SECF throughout the evening.

 
The SECF is dedicated to providing parents of children younger than five years of-age with the resources and support they need to cultivate stimulating and quality learning environments in the home.

According to SECF President Paul Fisher, the money raised will be matched by gift from Donald and Sandy Mayer. The funds will be used to expand reach and impact of the SECF by creating new modules for learning and implementing programs to reach more parents including a new male/father specific module.

“The Kiwanis-Rotary partnership represents a new beginning for both clubs,” said Toni Marwitz, Rotary Immediate Past President. “The possibilities for future collaboration are endless. The night was a huge success. We look forward to jointly expanding our programs to benefit the Savannah community.”
