District Governor Rod Leathers

From District Governor Rod:

Want to join me in supporting a good cause? We're raising money for Central Lake Lions Club Charities in support of pediatric cancer. Hair, beard, and mustache shave - all must go. Want to watch? It will be done live on Facebook and Zoom at District Cabinet meeting October 10, 2020. Your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.

The donations will be used in support of pediatric cancer with the 1st $2500 going to send a family to Camp Quality, a camp for children and their families battling cancer. Anything over that amount will be divided between Camp Quality, Maggie's Wigs for Kids, and Kids Kicking Cancer all 501c3 organizations which Lions of Michigan supports.

The preferred method to donate is on DG Rod's Facebook Fundraiser


If you don't have a Facebook account and would like to donate through PayPal with a debit or credit card you can use the Donate button below. Checks can be mailed to Central Lake Lions Club Charities, PO Box 279, Central Lake, MI 49622 with Pediatric Cancer in the memo.
