The Bridgeview Lions Club was chartered on May 6, 1975 and has served the Bridgeview Community faithfully ever since. Each member shares a common bond of dedicated service in helping others. Our Motto is “WE SERVE”. We place special emphasis on the blind and hearing impaired however we provide many humanitarian services for our community. For more information or if you are interested in joining the LARGEST and BEST NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION in the world please contact us by calling or emailing one of our officers.
Our Largest and best known is CANDY DAY FOR THE BLIND. This takes place each year on the second Friday in October, rain or shine. All money collected is utilized to aid the Blind and Hearing impaired and disabled.
In May of 1987 the Bridgeview Lions Club started a Bingo that they ran twice a month at the Bridgeview Community Center located at 79th & Oketo Avenue. Because of the economy they had to close the doors after 23 years.
The Club also hosts an Appreciation Buffet each year, to honor a School District #109 Educator of the Year, Veteran of the Year, Community Service Volunteers and the Seniors that help our club raise the necessary funds to help the needy.
