from everyone has been overwhelmingly positive. We had a record crowd and exceeded our goals!

This major club fundraiser helps to support many community organizations. The Orange Lions Charities Inc. is a 501-C3 nonprofit organization permit #E-2370472, with the main focus on blindness aid,
prevention, and eye research. Tax-deductible contributions benefit the Lions Club’s local and national charities such as Fidelco Guide Dogs, Low Vision Centers, the Orange Senior Center, Public Library (specialty large print and audio books), Youth Services, DARE, the Orange Historical Society, and the Volunteer Fire Department. Our club also awards Community Grants to worthy groups and/or individuals and provides scholarships to qualified seniors at Amity High School.

The participation and attendance of so many in the Spring Tasting were key to its roaring success and the Orange Lions Club thanks you! Thank you all for your support!
