Our annual fundraisers include Candy Day in early October, Candy Day is the premiere fundraiser for the services & programs provided to the hearing & visually impaired in Illinois. This event alone raises over 50% of the total operating funds for the Lions of Illinois Foundation. Through these donations to Lions of Illinois Foundation & The Elmhurst Lions are able to serve in excess of 18,000 men, women, & children each year.
For over 30 years, our annual Pizza Party, typically held in March is a widely attended family event, and not only is a favorite in the area, but is a chance for the community, past and present, to reconnect to their Elmhurst roots for an evening of fun and fellowship.
Our Reverse Raffle held at the end of summer utilizes the proceeds to benefit the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Learning Center for Diabetes. At the Learning Center for Diabetes, they will help adults and children with diabetes live their lives to the fullest everyday.
Pumpkin Patch & Family Fest
Fall brings Halloween and our Family Fun Fest and Pumpkin Patch at the Abbey Leisure Center in late October. Pumpkin delivery was on Monday, Columbus Day - we were happy to have so many of our Leo's available to help unload 10 tons of fun!!!!
You can always find the members of the Elmhurst Lions Club working hard to help others.
