Where does the money you spend at the EP Lions Pancake Breakfast, EP Lions Schooner Days, EP Lions July 4th Beer Trailer, EP Lions Corn Feed and the EP Lions golf tourney go? 100% of the proceeds from the public and our sponsors are donated to deserving causes. None of that money is used to support Lions Club operations. Our entire operating budget is supported internally with funds from members!
