Kiwanis’ September fundraiser returns with Colorado Mountain Gold peaches

If you’re in the market for some really good peaches that raise money for really good causes, mark your calendar for September 9.

The Northwest Austin Kiwanis host two peach fundraisers every summer, one in July and another in September. The deadline to order for the September sale is August 30. Contributed by the Northwest Austin Kiwanis.

That’s the day the Northwest Austin Kiwanis will deliver 22-pound boxes of the best peaches you can find in this part of the country right now.

The group hosts two peach fundraisers every year, one in July and another in September. They usually sell Texas peaches in July, but this year’s poor crop forced them to go with Colorado peaches earlier in the summer.

Next month’s sale of Mountain Gold peaches helps raise money for dozens of groups the Kiwanis support over the year, including Any Baby Can, Austin Child Guidance Center and Libraries of Love. Organizer Bud Baughman says they donate about $15,000 a year to local projects, and the peach sale is the primary source of that funding.

The deadline to order the peaches, which cost $45 per box, is August 30. You can order and find out more at

Customers can pick up their boxes from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Spetember 9 in the Anderson High School parking lot.
