Brighton Kiwanis Election Day Food Truck Fundraiser: Brighton Kiwanis is proud to present its Election Day Food Truck Fundraiser in conjunction with the Brighton High School Key Club and raising funds for Brighton High School scholarships in honor of Al Lewis. The event will be held from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, May 18 outside of Twelve Corners Middle School.
This is the first public food truck fundraiser in Brighton this year! Since Kiwanis can't have an Al Lewis Spaghetti Dinner at this year's school budget vote and board of education election, here's the next best thing. If you're coming out to vote, then take home dinner for the family! Even if you're not voting, everyone is welcome to the Food Truck Fundraiser!
The following food trucks are scheduled to participate: Macarollin, Marty's Meats, Roll'n Deep, Tuscan Wood-Fired Pizza, and Wraps on Wheels.
Kiwanis serves the Children of the World: One Child and One Community at a time. Key Club is an international student-led organization which provides its members with opportunities to provide service, build character, and develop leadership. In addition to its many other service projects in the community, Brighton Kiwanis presents multi-year scholarships to deserving seniors at Brighton High School each year.
