Join the community of support for Kevin Guest House! 

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

The proceeds from our special events and third party community fundraisers, which make up 51% our budgeted income, help to keep our doors open for guests.
