Sponsorship

Like all community events the Lions Club relies on civic minded businesses for their  support, In 2017 we introduced a new category of sponsorship called Community Champions and with their support the Club was able to operate the event. As part of their sponsorship the company names were placed on the Lions Events Trailer.
