The Lions Club Breakfast held in Monterey Park is their largest fundraiser of the year.

In October the club has their famous White Cane Days to remind everyone of their dedication to eye care.

The club also collects old eyeglasses that can be recycled to help the less fortunate with their eye care.

Please contact a Lion if you wish to donate eyeglasses or money to their cause.
