Spaghetti Fest a success!

The Inaugural SouthTown Lions Spaghetti Fest {“The Fest”) for the Cilla C Ranch was a success.  Raising more than $1,200 for the total event, the proceeds were split between Cilla C Ranch and Jimmy’s Family Pizza.

The Fest was the first event to benefit another organization other than the Lions and included vendors, a raffle and an opportunity to showcase what the SouthTown Lions can do when they work together.

The vendors goods included art, fashion, Funnel Cakes, Mystic Knights and Jimmy’s lovely mom and sister and one of Jimmy’s employees selling art.

Additionally, guest Lions from Northside dropped in to enjoy the great food and festivities.  It was a great time.  Just check out our photos on the Latin Fusion TV website: ~gallery page.

Cilla C Ranch is a 501(c)3 which builds character, self-esteem and development of youth through an equestrian based program.  The Ranch does a good job, as was evident with the behavior of the youth volunteers.  Many of the parents and volunteers commented on how well behaved they were.

All in all – it was a great event!

You are invited to the SouthTown Lions Club Inaugural Spaghetti Dinner Fest to be held Sunday, November 13, at Jimmy’s Family Pizza from 12 pm to 5 pm.  The fundraiser is for Cilla C Ranch, helping youngsters achieve their goals, raise their self esteem and get into college.

SouthTown Lions will transform Jimmy’s into a fun house with vendors, raffles and music to add to the day. Come buy and meet the gang, join the club or eat some pizza – the day is all good and the food is great!

This is a fundraising idea you can get you club involved with.  All it takes is a little work and some dedication.  Jimmy’s Family Pizza is here to help.  You sell the tickets – Jimmy makes the food! Pretty easy.

Special Thanks to all those that helped sell tickets and got involved!

Thanks Lions

The recently Chartered SouthTown Lions Club will hold its Charter Night at the Cadillac Bar & Grill September 8, 2011 from 6 to 9 pm. The Event will take place in the back room and is expected to be fun.

New Member and Officer Installation will take place with some surprises. There will be a Raffle with great prizes and giveaways.

It is a casual atmosphere, but dress to impress as you never know who will be in attendance.

As you may know, the Lions are the world’s largest Service Club and the top rated NGO (Non-governmental Organization) in the world and have more countries than the United Nations.

Our motto is We Serve and we have the resources to do so.

Please join us for an evening of fun, and fundraising for the newly chartered SouthTown Lions.

President Lion Michael
