The three Lions clubs in Cheyenne (Sunrise, which meets at 6:30 am, Noon, which meets at noon, and Frontier, which meets at 6:30 pm) have launched a new webzine, Community News and Notes, which will share information on the progress made in the Lions Clubs many missions –
* bringing awareness to diabetes, the leading cause of preventable blindness around the world
* the progress in curing blindness
* Lions clubs activities in Cheyenne and surrounding towns, including fundraisers.
We also have a companion, one double-sized print page that will be available at a variety of locations throughout the city.
We rebranded our November “Chiller in Cheyenne” cornhole tournament and fundraiser to “Throw for Sight.” This puts our signature fundraiser in line with the Sunrise Lions’ “Ride for Sight” and the Frontier Club’s “Shoot for Sight.”
As has been the case in the past, the director of our tournament was Paul Lopez of the Chey-town Cornhole League, and the Chey-town league members as usual turned out for the fun!
Sixteen teams vied at the Throw for Sight cornhole tournament!
Entry fees, divided 50-50, allowed us to give prize money to first, second and third finishers in the recreational and competitive divisions. Finishers were also presented with plaques honoring their achievement.
Entry fees, a 50-50 raffle, and a raffle for a Wicked Ridge crossbow from Cabela’s, plus the sale of “mulligans,” totaled up to $1,006 for the Noon Lions!
All funds will be divided between the Lions Clubs Vision Committee – helping needy residents of Larame County to obtain eye exams and eye glasses, and the Diabetes Awareness Committee – bringing awareness of diabetes to the Laramie County community.
