Where does the money you spend at the EP Lions Pancake Breakfast, EP Lions Schooner Days, EP Lions July 4th Beer Trailer and the EP Lions Corn Feed go? 100% of the profits are donated to deserving causes. None of it is used to support Lions operations. Our operating budget is supported internally with funds from members.
