Charity Luncheon - Carside Carryout By Carrabba's The Woodlands Lions Club has a fantastic - and delicious - fundraiser every April in conjunction with Carrabba's Italian Grill. The community is asked to purchase a ticket in advance - and in return Carrabba's will have a preboxed lunch ready for you to pick up curb-side on the day of the event. You can have a fabulous lunch (previously lasagna or Chicken Marsala, salad pasta and Bread) for a great price. The best part - the proceeds benefit charity! It's a great time to treat your family, friends, or coworkers to lunch. For large orders (typically 7 or more), we can arrange for FREE delivery.
The Woodlands Wildflower Festival
For 27 years, The Woodlands Lions Club has been the beneficiary of the proceeds from the annual Woodlands Wildflower Festival. The Woodlands Wildflower Festival is a family-oriented event that consists of over 20 varieties of wildflower seeds distributed to the public for free courtesy of our seed sponsors. To round out the festival, there is also face painting, clowns, DJ, petting zoo, pony rides, vendor booths, etc. One of the highlights of the festival is the annual Wildflower Poster and T-shirt Contest. Each year entries are accepted at The Woodlands Information Center for the adult and children's contest starting on Sept. 1st. The winning adult entry is made into our official Wildflower Festival Poster and the winning child's entry is made into our official Wildflower Festival T-shirt. Our sincere apprecation to all of our past corporate sponsors!
The Woodlands Lions Club awards approximately $5,000 every year to high school seniors at The Woodlands High School, College Park High School and Oak Ridge High School. The college scholarships are based on financial need, academics, and community involvement. If you know of a deserving high school senior at one of thse schools, please have them contact their school counselor for more information and an application.
Gift of Sight Program Throughout the year, The Woodlands Lions Club helps provide financial assistance for grade school students in South Montgomery County for eye exams and glasses. The exams are paid for by the club and the glasses are donated through Lens Crafters. Thousands of students have been helped with their site through this program. Almost every Lions club participates in a Gift of Sight Program for the schools in their hometown area. The club greatly appreciates the school nurses that identify the children in need, the optometrists that perform the exams for free, and Lens Crafters.
Eye Glasses - Recycling Program The Lions are dedicated to assisting individuals with their eye sight. One way we can help people around the world is through donating our used glasses. These glasses are then distributed international to individuals through mission trips. Please consider donating your used eye glasses. Donations sites are all around - including most Wal-marts.
Texas Lions Camp One of the greatest treasures in our state is the Texas Lions Camp. It is a summer camp specifically designed for phyically challenged children and children with medical conditions. Every year our club sends local children for a week long session of fun in Kerrville, Texas, at no expense - totally FREE.
