Name of creator
The Kiwanis Club of Vancouver received its charter in 1919. Kiwanis was founded to meet the fellowship needs of business and professional men and to function primarily in service and goodwill. Since its inception, the Kiwanis Club of Vancouver has raised funds for the handicapped, aged, and needy, and sponsored other civic, cultural and social activities. In 1960, it assumed sponsorship of the B.C. Music Competition Festival.
