Every February around Valentine’s Day the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Circle K hosts a large scale event known as Circle K Serenade. With approximately 100 people in attendance each year, it is the club’s largest external fundraiser and unites members from around the district.
Male performers showcase their musical talents with an exhibition song that is used to entice audience members to bid for a serenade on stage in front of everyone. Throughout the evening there is an opportunity drawing, photo booth, and on-site fundraisers that attendees can participate in.
“… I’m really happy and proud with the way it turned out. The decorations exceeded everyone’s expectations, the music was great, the crowd was interested, and everyone just had a good experience.” – Karen Galera, University of Nevada, Las Vegas Circle K
For 2014 the event theme was “Find Your Missing Piece” and the proceeds went towards Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding research into causes, prevention, treatments, and a cure for autism as well as increasing awareness and advocating for individuals affected with autism spectrum disorders. In total the event raised $2566.00 for the cause.
