The Greensboro Host Lions Club has a number of events throughout the year, including fund raising to support vision and hearing projects, a VIP Christmas Party, and Vision Screenings in addition to working with DSS to provide scholarships for Camp Dogwood and the VIP Fishing Tournament. 

Celebrate Lions Day at the Hoppers Game on Father’s Day, June 18th.  Portions of every box seat ticket purchased from a Lion will go toward Lion’s projects to assist the visually impaired. Robert Smith, blind from birth, will sing the National Anthem that day AND throw out the first pitch!  For ticket information contact Paul Marth at 336 420-8033.

The annual Christmas party for Visually Impaired Persons will be held this year on December 16th at 2 p.m. at Friendly Avenue Baptist Church.

Need a new car?  Lions are selling raffle tickets for $1.00 to held support Camp Dogwood, a camp for the visually impaired. The raffle winner gets a new car!   Ask a Lion how you can get a ticket.

We  collect used eyeglasses for use in third world countries. You may drop off eyeglasses at the Walmart optical section or at most ophthalmologist or optometrist offices from where Lions will pick those up. You can also give them to any Lion.

The club is collecting for “Brighter Visions” to support the work of the North Carolina Lions Foundation which supports Camp Dogwood for the Blind, eye exams and glasses, the Visually Impaired Fishing Tournament and other projects.  If you would like to make a tax deductible contribution to support this project you may make a check out to the Greensboro Lions Foundation and mail it to Paul Marth, 6004 Deer Park Circle, Greensboro, NC 27455.
