SLEEPING LADY LION - ANNUAL PROJECTS



ANNUAL PROJECT'S

VALENTINE'S FUNDRAISER

This project is our annual "Scholarship" project and each year we donate between $15,000 in local scholarships.  This fundraise includes a valentines dinner, silent auction, live auction and a raffle of various prizes.  The Bear Mt. Leo's join in helping us with this project.

 

SCHOLARSHIPS

We provide scholarships for High School Graduates and community members who would like to continue with their education and are in need of financial help.  Several of our members review the scholarship folders each year at the local High Schools and recommend recipients.  We also have an application for community members to submit to our club who are already out of school but would like to further their education.  Generally  we donated around $15,000.00 per but the amount can vary each year depending on our fundraising.

JULY 3RD. CELEBRATION

Each July the Sleeping Lady Lions join the Eagle River Lions in providing a spectacular independence day celebration.  The event provides a "FREE" event of Music, kids games, food venders, sky divers, beer garden and a beautiful display of fireworks at midnight.

BEAR PAW FESTIVAL

The Sleeping Ladies are very active in the Eagle River Bear Paw Festival.  We are the sponsors of the Bear Paw Pageant, sponsor of a slippery salmon team and have a float in the Bear Paw Parade which has resulted first place for 2 years in a row!

ARCH HOME

Volunteers of America runs a home for youth who are trying to overcome Alcohol and/or drug abuse.  The home is located within our community and even though they are run by Volunteers of America they are always in need of addition funding and help.  Our club provides them with many needs such as Thanksgiving Dinner, Christmas Dinner, Christmas gifts, items for their awards cabinet, fair tickets and concert tickets.  We also provide each client with a backpack upon graduation from the program that includes many essential such as toothpaste, tooth bushes, towels, phone cards, etc.  The Bear Mt. Leo's also provide Easter Baskets for the clients.

SENIOR BINGO

We provide Bingo for the seniors at the Chugiak Senior Center every month.  Bingo is held the 2nd Monday of each month at 1:30pm.

TREE OF GIVING

The local Schools & Eagle River Parks and Recreation provides our club with names of community members who are in need of assistance with gift at Christmas time.  We assign each family with a number and put a tag on 3 to 4 tree's which we place around our community (Wal-Mart, Credit Union One, 1st Nat, Bowling Alley and other area businesses).  We collect, sort and distribute the Christmas gifts.

EASTER E GG HUNT

The SLL join the Eagle River Lions, Eagle River VFW and The Eagle River Elks in hosting a community Easter Egg Hunt held each year at the Eagle River Lions Park.
