Lions Night at the Lake Erie Crushers Baseball Game

Lions from around District 13B enjoy the Zone 4 Social at the Lake Erie Crushers game on August 16.  We were able to sell tickets for the Harley in front of the stadium and we were able to sell 50/50 raffle tickets inside the stadium.  Thanks to Past Zone 4 Chair Lion Carol Shaffer for organizing and coordinating the event that raised about $1,900 for the Vision Clinic.  Also, many thanks to the Lorain Lions, who purchased 145 tickets, and to District 13B Lions, who purchased another 231!
 Elyria Lion Kyle Lowery and Lion Walt Frey helped set up the Lions information table on the main deck of the stadium.

Lion Dan Smith with our roaring Lion mascot and Lion Doc Smith taking a breather from a busy night of hawking 50/50 tickets.  An awesome sales team of six or seven Lions spread out through the stadium selling over $1400 worth of tickets for the 50/50.  Other members of the sales team were Lion Walt Frey, Elyria Lions Kyle Lowery and Brent Parker and Lion Velda Reynolds' grandson Daniel.  Thanks for your outstanding job!

 Here's the Lorain Lions section with a great view of the action behind third base.
