The Blanco Lions Club raises money for scholarships by selling raffle tickets for the game ball at each Blanco High School home football game. A team picture is mounted on the ball and all the players sign the ball. This year the club gave four $500 scholarships to graduating seniors.


Aluminum Cans

The primary fund raising project is the collecting of aluminum cans. Local merchants allow the club to place collection bins on their parking lots. Weekly the bins are emptied and the cans taken to a lot where the trash is removed and the cans are blown into a large trailer which holds about 1000 pounds of cans. Quarterly the trailer is hauled to a recycling yard in San Antonio. This activity generates about $2500 a year which is donated to local charities.
