On Wednesday, October 16, Culver’s of Whitewater and the Whitewater Kiwanis Breakfast Club will team up to benefit the Culver’s/Kiwanis Whitewater Breakfast Club’s Whitewater High School Scholarship Program. A portion of the sales made between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. on October 16 will be donated to the program.
Chair of the program, Ed Schweitzer, said, “Kiwanis appreciates the support offered by Culver’s to the Whitewater community. We are so happy to team up with Culver’s to raise funds for scholarships. Customers can enjoy a delicious meal and refreshing Culver’s frozen custard while supporting the Culver’s/Kiwanis Whitewater Breakfast Club’s WHS Scholarship.”
The Kiwanis Whitewater Breakfast Club is made up of dedicated volunteers who help children in the Whitewater community and the world, all with 100 percent of funds raised going directly to projects and zero to administrative costs. Each year, the club distributes approximately $20,000, with over half going to the Whitewater Unified School District, including Ferradermis, ELL Summer School Transportation, shoes for students, Badger Boys State and Badger Girls State, and scholarships. Kiwanis helped to build and maintain the Flowing Well Shelter, the shelter and accessible playground at Starin Park and Treyton’s Field of Dreams, as well as adopting a highway to clean up. In addition, the group donates to the Whitewater Youth Soccer Club, the Friends of the Whitewater Aquatic Center Family Partnership Fund, the Whitewater Food Pantry, Bethel House and more.
Funds are raised through annual Pancake Breakfasts that have been served continuously since the 1950s, the Discover Whitewater Series Half-Marathon Pancake Breakfast since it began, and yearly poinsettia and lily plant sales.

Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
