London Central
Lions Club

Annual Fish Fry & Auction

This event is held on the first Saturday in May each year and since 2006 it has been held at the South London Community Centre/Library at 1119 Jalna Bl. London.

In 2005 we held a fundraising event at the Royal Canadian Legion Victory.  Funds were used for Lion’s projects.

In 2006 we held a fundraising event to purchase trained Dog Guides for two visually impaired residents of the London District.

Approx. $6000.00 was raised at the event.

In 2007 our club re-named this event "LIONS FIGHT FOR SIGHT ". We were approached to assist a two year old London toddler blinded by a rare affliction.  The young girl Mackayla Genttner has optic nerve hypoblasts, which leaves the nerve that transmits signals from the brain to the retina undeveloped.  Funds were needed for a therapy room designed as a teaching tool for this blind youngster.

Approx. $10,000.00 was raised at this event for her.

Later that year, our club was contacted by a Senior Development Officer at St. Joseph Health Care Foundation.  She asked the club to consider the possibility of purchasing one of the 53 examination rooms at the new Ivey Eye Institute a commitment of $50,000.00 over a five year period. After lengthy discussions the club agreed to the purchase since it fell with the guidelines of the Lions Fight For Sight commitment.  Our total commitment was paid off in 2010 , two years ahead of our projected time period.  

In 2011 we agreed to purchase a piece of equipment for the hospital known as a DSAEK machine used in corneal transplants, it will double the annual transplants done each year and reduce a patient’s recovery time  to a month rather than six to nine months for patients that have to undergo surgery. We have committed $38,000.00 for this equipment to be paid over the next 3 years.
