Our Charitable Causes

Lions Club International
Lions Club programs include sight conservation, hearing and speech conservations, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations and many other programs.
Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation
The Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation serves thousands of residents each year through eye exams, eyeglasses, surgeries, low vision services, eyeglass recycling and vision screenings. One of the chief programs of the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation is Cubsight, where tens of thousands of pre-school aged children are screened every year.
Our mission includes serving our community and beyond by providing volunteer services and raising funds for humanitarian activities. The festival is our prime fundraiser to support the Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation and the Louisiana Lion’s Children’s Camp. In addition, this event provides resources which allow us to supply glasses and hearing aids to those in need in our community and to send handicapped children or children with juvenile diabetes to camp during the summer.
