Scotts Valley Host Lions Club utilize numerous methods to raise funds
to support our projects and the local community. The majority of our
funds are raised from the following larger projects:
Annual Crab Cioppino Feed and Dance
White Cane Day Solicitation
Eye Glass Recycling
Cioppino Feed and Dance have always been extremely successful
and popular with local residents. The event is normally sold out long
before the dinner. The dance is entertained by popular area bands featuring
music from the 60's. Contact
us if you would like to be notified of ticket sale availability
for the annual event scheduled on the first Saturday of March.
Cane Days are used to collect money for our Sight and Hearing
Fund. Money is collected by soliciting funds directly from the public
at various locations in Scotts Valley and by contributions from local
companies. Click here

eyeglasses are collected by Lions and other volunteers and are recycled
at one of nine Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers throughout the world.
The used eyeglasses are cleaned, repaired and classified by prescription.
The eyeglasses are then distributed to those in need by Lion volunteers
and other organizations hosting optical missions in developing countries.
Individuals may donate their used eyeglasses year-round to their local
Lions club via collection boxes located at various community offices
and businesses, offices of members of the American Optometry Association, LensCrafters stores, and Dr. Anthony Giannotti's
office in Scotts Valley.
