Lions serving Anchorage
Benton Bay Lions is one of many Lions Clubs in Anchorage. Our mission is Alaska youth sports.
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.
Meetings and Activities
Tuesday, June 30. Awards and new officer installed this coming Tuesday, June 30, at 6:00 pm. Rain or shine! The event is at the Lions Park on the Ted Stevens Airport property. Easy to find; from Spenard Road, turn west on Wisconsin Street, then west again on Lakeshore Drive. Keep going straight on Lakeshore, past Spenard Lake Park. Go through the chain link gates and Lions Park is down a little ways on the right. We will have tasty grilled brats and such, along with potato salad, hot baked beans, and individual bags of chips, and individual pop, Lacroix, and ice tea and individual desserts. Bring your own adult beverage. Ok as this is not a city park. Also bring your own chair and face mask and hand sanitizer. For health and safety, only one person will dish out the cooked food and another the side dishes. We will practice social distancing but still have a good time!

Benton Bay Activities
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.
