Lots of winners in Lions raffle


Don’t be sad if you didn’t win the 2012 Harley Davidson Switchback or one of 15 other raffle prizes from the Kachemak Bay Lions Club. Your $100 “donation” is going to help fund eye exams and glasses, Thanksgiving baskets, Long Term Care Center Christmas gifts, Leader Dogs for the blind,  diabetes research, cancer research, summer camps for visually impaired children, help for fire and medical emergencies, education scholarships and the list goes on. 

While Jim Stone is the true winner of the Harley Davidson, there are so many other winners who will be helped because of your generosity. In these times of economic hardship for many, it is truly heartening to see people still giving to help those less fortunate than themselves and for that we in Kachemak Bay Lions are very grateful.

A big thank-you to Adrienne and her staff at AJ’s Oldtown Steakhouse for providing a great venue for our Biker’s Ball and a very special thank you to Si and Ron and all the gang at Kenai Peninsula Harley Davidson for all their support for our raffle. We also would like to thank Scruggs Automotive & Tire, Fresh Catch Café, Fat Olives and the Homer Farmers’ Market. Without their helping us sell tickets or donating prizes, it would be very difficult to pull off this big event. Again, thank you to everyone who “donated,” you make it possible for Kachemak Bay Lions to support so many worthy causes.
