FOOD COLLECTION:

We loved seeing everyone at City Market last week!

As a community, we collected over 1,200 pounds of food & $510 of monetary donation for Loaves and Fishes Ministry of Fremont County.

 

EYE GLASS COLLECTION:

Wondering what to do with your used eyeglass frames? Don't throw them away!

Donating eyeglass frames is an easy way to help people who can't function normally because they can't see well. Most world blindness is unnecessary. Nearly 700 million people have avoidable blindness or impaired vision that could easily be helped with an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Instead, they have to live with functional blindness — the inability to see well enough to do basic everyday tasks, such as reading, writing, cooking and earning a living.

Cañon City Noon Lions Club collects old eyeglasses, reading glasses and sunglasses. After they are cleaned and repaired, the used frames are then distributed to people who can't afford to buy their own.

We accept both prescription and non-prescription eyewear, in both adult and children sizes.

Donating eyeglasses is easy. All you have to do is drop off your used frames at any of the following locations in Cañon City:

• Blair Vision Care
• City Market (Customer Service)
• Golden Age Senior Center
• Rocky Mountain Eye Center
• Skyline Vision Clinic
• Valley-wide Cañon City
• Walmart

 

18th Annual Knights of Blind Golf Outing

On June 15, 2019, the Cañon City Noon Lions Club and Foundation held their 18th Annual Knights of Blind Golf Outing at Sumo Golf Course, which was an exciting and highly-successful fundraising event. The net proceeds were approximately $14,000.

In addition to 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play, 18 teams of 4 golfers competed in a variety of events. Afterwards, participants enjoyed a scrumptious lunch catered by a local Mexican restaurant, while bidding on a wide array of silent auction items.

The net proceeds benefit the following: 
• Lions KidSight Screening 
• Eye Exams & Surgeries (children & adults)
• The Colorado Lions Camp (4-5 scholarships awarded annually) 
• Local Youth Activities & Scholarships 
• Flags for First Graders
• Local Emergencies 
• Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank 
• Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute Foundation
