Kiwanis Club of Rideau Runs Kiwanis Idol Contest

This spectacular event will showcase the vocal talents of young people from right here in the National Capital Region, culminating in an exciting two-day contest on the bandstand in the beautiful Vincent Massey Park.

Celebrity judges will crown Ottawa’s first “Kiwanis Idol” who will win not only the title of Kiwanis Idol, but also the opportunity for an artist development contract! In cooperation with Soundmaster Studios and The Dominic D’Arcy Talent Development Program, the Kiwanis Idol will work to create a two-song demo CD, towards a view to a record company deal.

The Kiwanis Club of Rideau is a member club of Kiwanis International; a thriving organization of service and community-minded individuals who support children and young adults. Kiwanis Club of Rideau operates with the belief that children and their communities benefit from the efforts of a proficient group of caring and involved volunteers.

Children: Priority One are the three words that guide this club, and the Kiwanis Idol initiative is an opportunity for you to make a difference in your community and help a child in need. Together with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Support Programs, Children at Risk and The Easter Seal Society, the Kiwanis Club of Rideau is asking for your support. Involvement in Kiwanis Idol is about building brighter futures for young people.

Sponsorship with Kiwanis Idol will put you in the company of members of the corporate sector and other individuals who share our dedication and commitment for making the dreams of youngsters a reality, for developing relationships that will contribute to a vibrant community and for working in the spirit of cooperation to achieve our goal. Kiwanis Idol will be a premier event this summer here in the Nation’s Capital. Join us for two days of singing and showmanship, for glitter and pageantry, thrills and excitement.

Enjoy the festive atmosphere and the flurry of competition in the company of your friends and colleagues. Savour the knowledge that you contributed to making the event a reality that will change the lives of young people forever.

Yours Truly, Eldon J. Fox
