The Austin Lions Club has many recurring projects
that are the mainstay of our fundraising efforts. Listed on
this page are most of those projects. The funds raised by
these projects are distributed to worthy causes as outlined on the
DONATIONS page of this web site.
The Pancake Day is an event
that has come to be associated exclusively with the Austin Lions
Club. It is normally held each January. Lions Club members
volunteer their time and resources to setting up for this big day,
cooking and serving the food (Pancakes, French Toast and Sausage)
and cleaning the hall after the event. 1959 was the 1st
year for the Austin Lions Club Annual Pancake Day. This event is the biggest single-day fundraiser for the Austin
Lions Club. Please watch the MONTHLY CALENDAR for the date
of Pancake Day.
- Austin High School Packers Football Concession
The Lions Club members sell
concessions at two stands located at Wescott Athletic Field during
all Austin High School Packer home football games. The hot
chocolate, hot dogs, pizza, drinks and snacks sold at these stands
give enthusiastic fans the warmth and energy to cheer for their
respective teams. The Lions Club splits all profits from the concession
stand sales 50/50 with Austin High School. We are now open during some track meets.

White Canes one day each year.
These white canes are a symbol of Lions Clubs worldwide and their
dedication to helping people with sight-impaired disabilities.
