The Chicago Uptown Lions Club has been serving the Uptown and Edgewater communities of Chicago for 102 years!

In 1917 a group of Chicago businessmen met to discuss the formation of a countrywide volunteer service organization to support the needs of their communities. Now there are more than 48,000 Lions Clubs worldwide with 1.4 million members serving in over 200 countries. Lions Clubs International is the largest service organization in the world.

The Chicago Uptown Lions Club is proud to be one of the oldest, longest-running clubs in the Lions Clubs International organization.

Our local Chicago Uptown Lions Club and clubs worldwide serve sight-impaired people and those with diabetes, and those with other needs. Through various fundraising efforts, the Chicago Uptown Lions raise funds for these and other humanitarian needs in our local community in support of other community organizations, for our local Lions District, State District, and Lions Clubs International. Click on the "Club Projects" page for more information.

The Chicago Uptown Lions Club also conducts various service events in the community including offering free hearing and eye screenings periodically and has drop boxes in various business locations where you can drop off your used eyeglasses, hearing aids, cell phones, and printer ink cartridges to be recycled and reused by those in need. Click on the "Club Projects" page for screening dates and locations of eyeglasses drop-off boxes.

Our Club holds a monthly dinner meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at a local restaurant, where we meet to discuss our activities and for social mingling and fun.

Currently, we are meeting at Patio Beef at 6022 N Broadway, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. If you are interested in joining our Club, please feel free to attend!

Please support our efforts to assist the less fortunate in our community and worldwide.
