Dear Friends, Colleagues and Fellow Lions!

Coming very soon is the Lions Club of Quincy’s largest annual fundraiser, the Evening for Sight, to be held, April 4, 2024, 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the The Tirrell Room, 254 Quarry Street, Quincy.

Each year at this event, we present the prestigious ‘Francis X. McCauley Community Service Award’ to a deserving recipient. Named in honor of the late Frank McCauley, former four-term Quincy Mayor, and long-time member and president of the Lions Club of Quincy, this award is given to someone who demonstrates a commitment of service to the community consistent with the Lions Club motto, ‘We Serve.’

We are so pleased to announce that this year’s awardee is Daniel J. Quirk, of Quirk Auto Dealers Owner & CEO. Won’t you join us to celebrate Dan?

‘Evening for Sight’ sponsors receive valuable exposure through press releases, paid advertising in the Quincy Sun, QATV appearances, as well as social media posts, attractive event signage and call-outs throughout the event. Let’s get creative! Tell us how you would like to promote your business with this event, and we will do our best to accommodate your request!

The Lions Club of Quincy is part of a world-wide, non-political service organization with significant impact on local and global causes, involving primarily the visually-impaired and educational advancement. Here are just some of the ways “We Serve:”

• Partner with Quincy Public Schools for the “Kid-sight” vision screening program, which has screened more than 8,000 students since the program’s start, catching many hidden eye problems and saving a child’s sight on many occasions.

• Offer two scholarships at both Quincy high schools, and sponsored a competitive speech contest.

• Established a “Toolbox” scholarship at Quincy High for technical education, helping a graduate acquire the tools of their trade.

All proceeds from this fundraiser support Quincy Lions Club local charities mentioned here, which also include - but are not limited to - Massachusetts Lions Eye Research Foundation, and the Lions Club International Foundation, which helps people all over the world with vision issues.

We have set an ambitious goal of $25,000 for this major club fundraiser, and we need your support to help us answer the dozens of requests we receive regularly from sight-related causes, educational support, and Quincy area residents in general need.
