Akima Celebrates 75th Anniversary



Akima Club of Knoxville is celebrating its 75th anniversary year. Founded in 1947 as a women’s service club, Akima is made up of approximately 125-150 women who are dedicated to enriching the Knoxville community through thousands of volunteer hours and tens of thousands of dollars in financial support to area nonprofit agencies. In May 2020 and 2021, the Akima Grants program awarded record amounts of over $63,000 and over $83,000 respectively to 49 agencies. Funds were raised through Akima Cabaret, the club’s major fundraiser presented every other year by members of Akima and associates. Performed just under the wire before the COVID-19 shut downs, Akima Cabaret 2020 provided the monies for the Akima Grants of 2020 and 2021. Preparations are underway for Akima Cabaret 2022 February 18-19 at The Mill and Mine.
