Join the community of support for Kevin Guest House!

Together we can raise funds to support the families calling Kevin Guest House their home away from home. There is something for everyone, whether it is golf, beer tastings, having supper in the street or bidding on some great auction items.

Proceeds from these special events and community fundraisers make up 51 percent our budgeted income, and help to keep our doors open for guests.
