May will be a busy fundraising month for the Williams Lake Lions Club, says Lion Al Garlinge.

The Lions and Lioness clubs are jointly sponsoring their annual Mother’s Day Market and Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, May 13 in the Save-on Foods parking lot.

Participating vendors will set up at 7 a.m. and the gates open at 8 a.m. with breakfast served from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The breakfast is free for all mothers with a nominal charge of $6 for adults and $3 for children 10 and under.

“It’s a great breakfast consisting of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage and a beverage,” Garlinge says.

Admission to the market is by donation.

“This is a true market with venders selling all sorts of goods, new and used,” Garlinge says.

Vendors can rent a space for $10 and rent tables if needed for $5 each by contacting Al at 250-392-6834 or Lionel at 250- 398-5297.

The Stampede Queen contestants will be on hand helping and mingling with the people.

The Lions Club annual Club 400 dinner, dance and casino night follows on May 26 at the Williams Lake Curling Rink.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with dinner at 7 p.m., catered by Karen’s Restaurant. Dancing to the music of Perfect Match follows, with fun and gaming until midnight. “This event actually started back in October, when the tickets went on sale,” Garlinge says. “The Club 400  tickets sell for $52 each. The ticket includes admission for two to the casino night dinner and dance as well as a chance to win one of 52 draws throughout the year.”

Garlinge says winners are announced every Friday from January to the end of December. There are only 400 tickets sold with 49 draws for $52 and three draws for $500.

“You won’t find better value for your dollar anywhere,” Garlinge says. “The tickets are all sold out for this year but will go on sale again in October for next year. This is the major fundraiser for the local Lions club with the profits going back into the community to support youth groups, seniors, the arts, community projects and assisting people in need.”

He says the Lions also work with the Salvation Army to provide Christmas dinners and gifts for children. This project has been running for more than 25 years and will keep going as long as the great support from the community continues.

Next year’s Club 400 tickets will be on sale from October to end of December 2012 for next year’s event.

Tickets are available from any Lion member or visit our web site at williamslakebc.lionwap.org for more information.
