In 1925, Alabama native Helen Keller addressed a Lions International convention, asking the Lions to become “Knights of the Blind”. More than 80 years later, The Lions are still fighting to end preventable blindness.
The Lions Clubs of Alabama work hard to raise about 60% of the revenue that it takes for Alabama Lions Sight to operate and provide patient services. Through projects ranging from pancake breakfasts to selling Boston butts to hosting beauty pageants, the Lions take care of their number one mission – preserving and restoring sight.
In addition, Alabama Lions Sight receives grants from others in the community. Foundations like the EyeSight Foundation of Alabama and corporations such as BlueCross BlueShield of Alabama provide funding to help us fulfill our mission of serving those in need.
Alabama Lions Sight has two major fundraising projects: East-West Baseball is a state-wide baseball tournament for high school juniors and seniors that showcases talent for scouts and college coaches while raising money for sight. Candy Day is a yearly event for which Lions Club members hand out Lions candy and accept donations for Alabama Lions Sight.
Alabama Lions Sight appreciates those who raise and contribute money to help us fulfill our mission of saving sight.
