GIVING BACK to the COMMUNITY

Each year the Bemidji Lions donate over $16,000, going to community and Lions International organizations. Our 2011-12 list has over 35 different charities that we support.

The Bemidji Lions Club conducts three major fundraising events annually: Flapjack Day since 1978, the Fall Cash Raffle, and the BBQ Chicken Lions Fare and Auction since 1951.

Lions Clubs have four "pillars" that it supports: Eyesight, Hearing, Diabetes, and Youth. In recent years Bemidji Lions Club has raised $12,000 to $17,000 annually to support these four pillars. We provide donations to approximately 30 organizations, including $4,500 to $5,500 to 15 community organizations that provide support and services related to youth.
