Where there's a need, there's a Lion. Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organization in the world. Our 1.4 million members perform valuable service in 210 countries and geographic areas around the globe.
Lions are friends, family and neighbors who share a core belief: community is what we make it.

Lions Clubs play an important part in eye health promotion in their communities. Benton Bay Lions take a lead role in coordinating the vision screening program in the Anchorage area. Volunteers needed, check the schedule here.
Split the Pot
Our main fund raising activity is selling split-the-pot tickets during UAA, AASA, and other miscellaneous athletic events. We work well over 100 events during the year raising money to support amateur athletics in Anchorage and many other community support projects. Most other projects are in support of blindness prevention or those who are blind or visually impaired. You can subscribe to the UAA Sport Schedules on your phone or computer. The calendar then updates automatically. You can view the calendar here online.
