Members of the Lincolnton Lions Club, wearing purple and gold vests, will be making a clean sweep of the city this weekend.
Club members will be at Wal-Mart, Bi-Lo and Main Street from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday selling brooms, kazoos, patriotic and humorous badges and Camp Dogwood raffle tickets.
Lions Club brooms will cost $3 for child/hearth brooms, $7 for household brooms and $8 for warehouse/patio brooms.
Lions Club kazoos are $1 each. Patriotic and humorous badges cost $1 and benefit the Lions Club college scholarship.
All other proceeds will go towards providing services for the blind and deaf; purchasing eyeglasses and hearing aids for the needy; providing scholarships for the blind and deaf to attend Camp Dogwood; and providing scholarships for the blind and visually-impaired to attend the North Carolina Lions visually impaired fishing tournament at Nags head.
Camp Dogwood raffle tickets are $1 each or a book of 12 tickets for $10. Purchasing these raffle tickets benefits Camp Dogwood, a therapeutic recreational facility owned and operated by the North Carolina Lions along Lake Norman in Sherrils Ford.
Every camping season, the Lincolnton Lions Club provides camp scholarships for blind and visually impaired children and adults.
The grand prize winner of the raffle will be able to choose between four vehicles: a 2005 Jeep Liberty, 2005 Chrysler Voyager, 2005 Dodge Dakota or a 2005 Chrysler Sebring. by Staff Reports
