The Kiwanis Club of Monroe, Louisiana is partnering with the Children's Museum in Monroe to raise money for community projects. Kiwanis has designated 2009 proceeds from the well to Med Camps of Louisiana. The Spiral Wishing Well has been used by many organizations over the years, with some of the largest donations raised at one day or weekend events as a result of contests and interactive games with the coins. Children and adults enjoy watching the coins spin around the vortex-shaped funnel, gaining speed and seeming to defy the laws of gravity as they hug the side walls without falling over before entering the well.
The Kiwanis Club of Monroe also has a limited number of mini-well toy banks available for purchase that are great for show-and-tell and birthday gifts for children. For more information, please contact us at 322-8710.
