The Lake Forest/Lake Bluff Lions Club is a local organization that meets monthly to socialize, have fun & positively affect our local and global community. Our primary mission is to improve the quality of life for the visually impaired, with a secondary mission to assist and provide an opportunity to local youth. 

Through fundraising efforts, we support vision research, Leader Dogs, college scholarships, little league baseball, and GLASA (Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association) just to name a few.

We are your local Lions Club. We Serve.

The Club Hosted Ticket Sales for "Brigadoon" at CenterStage in Lake Forest

CenterStage provides not only a source of live entertainment to its audiences but, more importantly, a wealth of educational opportunity in theater arts for all members of the community.

Its volunteer casts and crews represent a kaleidoscope of young and old, dedicated amateurs and aspiring professionals, seasoned veterans and rookies. Since 1971, our productions have served as a foundation for many a career in theater and the related arts. Many more have discovered their lifelong love of theater, literature, music, art, design, and other creative pursuits while working on our shows.

Wine Tasting Event!

The club hosted its “Wine Tasting” event at Elawa Farm

The event included the tasting and drinking of five wines: 2 red, 2 white, and 1 sparkling wine. We had delicious hors-d'oeuvres to pair with the wine.

Proceeds from the event went to community need and youth programs the club supports. They include Camp Lions, Cool Pantry, CROYA, Family Service of Lake County, Foundation for Fighting Blindness, Lake County Center for Independent Living, GLASA, Midwest Veterans Closet, Safe Haven, and others.
