 How much donated money goes to the Lions club's charitable causes?
We give 100 percent!

100% of the profits generated from our projects are donated back to the local community through our Glen Ellyn Lions Foundation and to the Lions Clubs International through the LCIF. We cover all costs from our own dues, ensuring that ALL donated funds go to the many charitable causes we support.




The final numers are IN!!! This past Candy Day 2017 the Glen Ellyn Lions Club was able to raise $1,800 that will be given to the Lions of IL Foundation, . These funds will help persons with low vision and low hearing get connected with local organizations that provide services to assist with these conditions. For example this Lion Year (2017-2018) we are able to support 2 campers to go to Camp Lions, where kids with low vision and low hearing can go and be kids at a camp designed to fit their needs! Thank you to all who donated, your donations are greatly appreciated!


We are really looking forward to our amazing Annual Pasta Dinner, to be held on April 21st 2018 at St. Petronille Catholic Church in Glen Ellyn. Tickets are $7 per attendee and kids 7 and under eat free! It will be from 5pm-8pm. Our annual event has of course amazing food from Barones as well as alcoholic beverages provided by the Knights of Colombus. This is a great family event so bring your parents, in-laws, grandchildren, children, husband, wife, neighbor and friends!

This year we are bringing back the vision screening machine thanks to the Elburn Lions Club! This machine is 100% pain free and it will work with children as young as 6 months old. It offers a chance for people who have not see the eye Dr. in a while, or who do not have insurance to get an exam, to get a quality screening to see if there are any eye issues that should be addressed. We love providing our friends and neighbors with access to this amazing machine as well as access to exams and glasses in partnership with Dr. Kellyn in Glen Ellyn!

All proceeds from this event will go to the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry, so why not dine out and get some ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT Barones and know your money is going to a great cause. 

All proceeds from this event will be going to the pantry, so bring your friends and even your enemies because eveyrone loves Barones food!!!! The Glen Ellyn Food Pantry will be in attendance to do a brief overview of their services as well, so come prepared for a great evening out to support the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry!


Not only do we volunteer and put on fundrasiers, but we also have fun! Each year our Lion District 1-J hosts a fun bowling tournament, usually in the winter. This year our tournament was on Jan 21st 2018, and man was it fun! Some of our team mates even broke into 3 digit numbers! There were raffles and give aways and great way to give back. Not to mention a 50/50 raffle too! A great time was had by all and thanks to the great friends who were able to attend that day! See you next year!

SKI FOR SIGHT JAN 26-28 2018

Every year in Winter local Lions Clubs come together to put on a weekend of winter fun for persons with low vision or vision imparements. This year, theSki for Sight event is January 26-28. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and other Lions Clubs in District 1-J, we are able to help guide and support participants so they can do activities like skiing, ice fishing, dinner, bingo, bowling, dancing and more. This weekend gives persons with sight imparements the chance to experience things they may not otherwise get the chance to do. For more information click here:

This event is made possible by your donations and sponsorships as well as volunteers donating their time to help participants with all the daily activities. This year you can help sponsor a participant for the weekend for only $200! Last year, the Glen Ellyn Lions Club was able to sponsor 3 participants! We hope to sponsor more participants, and if you want to help us sponsor someone please donate by clicking the link below!





Since 1917, Lions clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities. From involving members in projects as local as cleaning up an area park or as far-reaching as bringing sight to the world's blind, Lions clubs have always embraced those committed to building a brighter future for their community.

Our programs are continually changing to meet new needs and greater demands, but our mission has never wavered: "We Serve."

We Serve - more than a motto - it's who we are.


Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
