According to Club President Pam Tibbetts, “Money raised will allow our Club to meet pressing needs in the community. Lions members thank everyone who contributes to this important work and make a difference in our community.”

All the money raised from this event, stays in Epping to help residents in need of vision care or hear- ing assistance. The Epping Lions Club has been helping residents since their inception as a club in April of 2009. They also have advised residents from other communities in their search for vision care.
