Fundraising, bequest, donations and selling usufructs made it possible to finance our projects without any state assistance.
Regular fundraising activities:
The fundraiser with the highes income is the BAR SERVICE at the annual Swakopmund Carnival (Küska), now in its 17th year. Every year in June Swakopmund Lions are busy serving drinks from behind our own bar and in the hall for not less than 5 nights. Having proved to be a reliable partner for the Swakopmunder Karnevalsverein brought them to ask the Lions to take over the catering service too. So for the last 8 years the Old Age Home kitchen is providing food, cooked and served by Lions at the Büttenabende, too.
Another major fundraiser are the so-called LION LUNCHES. About 3 times in a year Lion Ladies are cooking a nice meal for the public joining us in the dining hall of the Lions Old-Age Home. People usually join in great numbers, because this lunch is not only nice, but also comes at a special price. Our bar is also open on these Saturdays for a Frühschoppen.Last but not least we organize a CLUB 100 raffle, where monthly cash prizes can be won by participants
Other fundraiser to name only a few from the past are:
Catering at a private wedding in the desert;
Bar service at church functions and anniversaries of various institutions;
Organizing flea markets;
Putting up our premises for rent for private functions;
We hope the information about our projects illustrates the worthwhile work of the Swakopmund Lions Club. Help is always welcome. The more funds available the more we can do for the community. Please support the Lions. You can be absolutely sure that all monies raised or any gifts donated will be used up to the last cent for a good cause. None of these funds will ever be used for any other purpose, as any club expenses are covered by membership fees and member´s private contributions
Your donations in whatever form are most welcome and highly appreciated!
