Kiwanis Clubs are known for changing the world by serving children, one child and one community at a time. The Kiwanis Club of McIntosh Trail is making a difference here in their own community by hosting a Mustang Drawing to benefit The Children’s Village at Christian City. Proceeds from the drawing will help provide food, clothing, ongoing support, and care for the abandoned, abused, and neglected children who live in the cottages at Christian City. Tickets are only $100 and will give you a chance to win a 1968 Mustang GT convertible.

Members of the Kiwanis Club of McIntosh Trail surrounding the 1968 Mustang convertible. Seated are (from L to R) Heidi Becker, Christian City’s Director of Marketing and Development, and Kiwanis Club of McIntosh Trail President Kay McInroe. Standing are (from L to R) Gina Deutsch, Karen Schroeder, Wade Williams, Desmond Thrope, Phil Boswell, Joe Meyers, Jim Yarborough, Jerry Collins, Eric Hinkle, Bruce Sutherland, Ernie Curtis

The winning ticket will be drawn at the 6th Annual Chair-ity Event on Thursday, December 6, 2012 at the Dolce in Peachtree City. This event also benefits the boys and girls at The Children’s Village. Everyone who has purchased a Mustang ticket will receive free entry into the Chair-ity Event, which would otherwise be $20 per person. You do not need to be present to win, but the Chair-ity Event will be a fun holiday festivity you won’t want to miss!

The Children’s Village provides abandoned and abused children a safe environment in a loving, family centered setting. Boys and girls live in cottages with full time Christian house parents who give them all the love and care needed for success. The children come to Christian City after dealing with situations of life crisis, such as the death of a parent, divorce, or sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. The program’s family environment allows children from every background to have access to a traditional family unit and support systems to help mend their wounded spirits. For many children, The Children’s Village may be the only home they will ever remember. To learn more about The Children’s Village visit www.christiancity.org or call Heidi Becker, Director of Marketing & Development, at 770-703-AMEN.
