Torrey Pines Kiwanis Club and Torrey Pines Kiwanis Foundation

kiwanis_logo

 

The Torrey Pines Kiwanis (TPK) club was founded in 1982 as a spinoff of the La Jolla Kiwanis Club to serve the East La Jolla area and the Golden Triangle area. TPK started serving the Scripps Mira Mesa area in December 2013. TPK is part of Kiwanis Division 21. The TPK mission is to serve San Diegans with disabilities by funding organizations focused on improving the lives of children, adults and wounded warriors, through adaptive sports, recreation and education programs. The TPK club is the organization behind the prestigious La Jolla Festival of the Arts™. In 1987, TPK member Dallas Clites, a professional photographer, suggested producing an art festival as a means to raise funds to support programs for San Diegans with disabilities. So began the La Jolla Festival of the Arts™, which is held annually in June at UCSD Warren Field. Our club is open to all, and you might find our humor and passion something you could embrace. We’d love to meet you! Come visit!

Proceeds from the Festival are managed and distributed through the Torrey Pines Kiwanis Foundation, 501(c) (3) Tax ID 33-0329642.
