This past Saturday, April 22, several members of the Aberdeen Lions were camped out in front of Wal-Mart in Aberdeen to raise some money for Camp Dogwood. During the four hours Lions Connie, John, Dave, Dorothy, Jim, Chuck & Eric sold about 29 books worth of tickets and raised about $330! Not bad for a morning's work.
We also had a special raffle for the tickets sold during the morning for a $50 Wal-Mart gift card. The lucky winner was Tim Despain of Pinebluff. Thanks to everyone that bought a ticket and to the Lions that were there to make the morning successful.
"Since 1967, Camp Dogwood for the Blind & Visually Impaired has been a beacon of service to citizens from all over North Carolina. This summer destination provides a wonderful and therapeutic vacation retreat for persons with blindness and visual impairment.
Every summer, up to 880 campers enjoy weekly stays with numerous recreational and entertaining activities. Our guests enjoy fun and relaxation while developing friendships with each other staff, and volunteers."
