Molokai Lions Club News Release
The Molokai Lions Club will hold its second annual “Lions Walk for Sight on Molokai” on Saturday, Sept. 28.
Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. in front of the Kalele Book Store in Kaunakakai. The community is welcome and encouraged to participate in this annual walk. T-shirts will be available to all participants who make a donation, while supplies last.
At last year’s inaugural event, the Molokai Lions raised more than $1,500 to help improve the eyesight of Molokai residents. This fundraiser allowed the Molokai Lions to bring the Vision Van back to Molokai in February and provide vision screenings for 633 adults and children.
All money raised through donations stays on Molokai. The money will be used to assist the Molokai Lions Club with sight-related activities such as the vision screening in the elementary schools, the Project Vision Van and vision help to those in need.
Monsanto is the Lions Club’s corporate sponsor and recognizes the need for help with vision on Molokai. Those not wishing to walk may send donations to “Molokai Lions Club,” P.O. Box 1923, Kaunakakai, HI 96748.
