Lisle, Ill. (January 31, 2018) – The SEASPAR/Kiwanis Aktion Club, a partnership between the South East Association for Special Parks and Recreation and the Kiwanis Club of Lombard, hosted an 80s Dance at the Lisle Recreation Center on January 27 to raise money for charity.

The mission of the Aktion Club is to provide adults with disabilities an opportunity to develop initiative and leadership skills and to serve their communities. Fundraising and service projects are a key part of the club’s activities, and the 80s Dance kicked off its 2018 fundraising initiatives.

More than 50 SEASPAR participants with disabilities attended the event, which featured a DJ spinning 80s classics, a retro photo booth, and refreshments. Sequins, tutus, and legwarmers were the preferred attire, as posters from 80s movies adorned the recreation center walls.

Money raised by the event will be used to support Feed My Starving Children, Noah’s Hope, and hurricane relief.

Since its creation in 2005, the SEASPAR/Kiwanis Aktion Club has raised funds and performed service projects for causes including veteran and senior services, hunger and disaster relief, health and medical research, animal welfare, and many more. The club’s first donation was to Hurricane Katrina relief efforts on September 19, 2005. The club received Kiwanis International’s Distinguished Club Award for 2014-2015.

More than 500 Kiwanis Aktion Clubs have more than 12,000 members worldwide. Aktion Club is the only community service club for adults with disabilities.
