Join the community of support for Kevin Guest House! 

A fun way to support our guests is by joining one of our special events throughout the year. Together we can raise funds to support the families that call Kevin Guest House their home away from home. There is something for everyone, whether it is golf, blues, or family friendly events.

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