In addition to the unveiling of the prize winners and honorable mention photos, the reception will feature music from the Evanston Symphony Orchestra, light refreshments and a silent auction which benefits the Kiwanis Foundation.

“We are very pleased with the continuing response to the contest,” said Dr. Stamata Blanas, president of the Evanston Kiwanis Club, which sponsors the contest. “Each year our contest participants come up with a fresh look at what drives the excitement which is the Evanston community,” Blanas added.

A special feature of this year’s display will include several photos from students at Family Focus. Collaborating with the Evanston Community Foundation and the Evanston Art Center, the students had a summer experience of instruction on how to enhance their photo-taking experience. These photos will also be featured at the Kiwanis reception.

“We hope to encourage more young people to enjoy photography, pictures are more than just a celebration, they are a part of our history, too,” Blanas said.

Individuals who would like to make a bid on the auction items, can do so by visiting makeitbetter.net.

In the past five years, the Kiwanis Foundation has given close to $150,000 to various Evanston organizations.
