Coolest Dog on the Front Range Contest

 Our 7th annual Foothills Kiwanis Club's Coolest Dog on the Front Range Contest is about to commence. Competition opens August 1 and runs to the evening of September 22.  In 2023 we raised approximately $19,000. Thank you to all contestants, sponsors and voters.  Many sponsors are already aboard for this year.

The top 7 dogs will get their image on the cans of several hundred cans (crowlers) of beer, named by the winner.  High finishers get the beer.

Keeping Kids Safe

Alert Dogs for Kids

The Foothills Kiwanis "Alert Dog Training Academy for Kids" program provides alert dogs to children who have severe allergy reactions or diabetes that protects them by barking before eating something that can trigger a reaction or when their blood-sugar level is low. Click here to get more details about the alert-dog program and participating families, and how you can apply to receive an alert-dog for your child.


Helping The Community

The Salvation Army

Red Kettle Program

Foothills Kiwanis has teamed up once again with Salvation Army for bell ringing. All donations will be used by The Salvation Army to help families in Broomfield and Boulder Counties. Last year Foothills Kiwanis helped raise $23,315 and provided over 200 hours of volunteer hours to The Salvation Army.
