The Iowa Quad Cities Rotary Club invites you to eat ribs to help kids at their 5th annual Ribs For Kids event, brought to you by Knilan’s Furniture, Friday, August 21st from 5:30-8:30pm at Kelly’s Irish Pub & Eatery on 53rd Street in Davenport.
 
Your event ticket gets you a full plate of Kelly’s world-famous, mouth-watering ribs complete with sides and a drink, live music from Wicked Liz & the Belly Swirls, and a chance to win a family vacation package that includes a week in a luxurious 4-bedroom Florida condominium just minutes from Disney World in Orlando. 
 
Tickets are $40 in advance and $45 at the door.  Click here (jake@maximmarketing.us) to contact a member of the Iowa Quad Cities Rotary Club about ticket purchases. 
 
All proceeds from the event will go to help needy and at-risk kids in the area through the projects and partnerships of the Iowa Quad Cities Rotary Club.  
 
One of the club’s signature projects is Davenport’s Challenger Little League, which it helped establish in 1989.  The league allows boys and girls with physical and mental disabilities to enjoy the game of baseball and we continue to support it financially but also with volunteer hours.
 
Another important project is the Lids For Kids Program.  In 2015, we were able to provide bicycle safety training and a free bicycle helmet to 2nd graders at seven elementary schools in Bettendorf and Davenport.   
 
Also in 2015, the club distributed more than $12,000 in additional grant monies to organizations and programs that provide critical and meaningful services to needy and at-risk children in our area including Rick’s House of Hope, Project Renewal, St. Ambrose Dance Marathon (to benefit the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital), YMCA Fairmount Pines Summer Program, Christian Care and Boy Scouts of America.
