Six Lions Clubs from Region IV/Zone 3 participated including Deer Park, Freedom District, Greater Carroll, Roaring Run, South Carroll and Taylorsville-Winfield. This year’s tournament was in honor of International Director Richard Liebno and the clubs sent $5,050 to the American Diabetes Foundation for research to find a cure for this dreaded disease.
They also sent $5,050 to Lions Vision Research Foundation, a program which supports vision research for a variety of causes of blindness and Lowe vision as well as $2,525 to the District 22W Hearing & Speech Action Program to aid those in need of assistance who are deaf or suffer from reduced hearing.
For over 70 years, the members of the Freedom District Lions Club have been committed to helping those in need in the Sykesville / Eldersburg community, our state and the world at large. Donations help to support club service projects such as: providing free vision testing of preschool age children in the local community, loaning hospital beds and other medical assistance equipment to those in need, funding research of programs to solve vision and diabetes related health problems suffered by so many of our fellow citizens, awarding college scholarships, and supporting youth programs in our community.
These are just some of the outreach programs the club supports each year. 100% of the funds the club raises in the community go back into helping those in our community and the world beyond.
