Nepal Earthquake Fundraiser

The Nepal Fundraiser of May 20,  2015 was a complete success! Such an enjoyable atmosphere with great food as usual.

President Angie Loo and her committee Lions Al Chow, Bob Hiew, Eugene Chow, Stacey Chan and Douglas Lim did an excellent job in pulling this fundraiser together at the last minute.

The Edmonton Chinese Bilingual Education Association (ECBEA) partnered with Lions, greatly contributing to the success of the fundraiser.

Our new Alpha Leos Club, ages 12-18, initially proposed the idea to raise funds for Nepal and provided support and assistance throughout. There were many that donated funds and silent auction items.

All together we answered the call of Nepal Needs Our Help.  Through the effort of so many, the total amount raised was $28,110.74 which will be doubled by the Canadian Government, bringing a donation of $56,221.48 which concludes this joint ECBEA and ECLC fundraising event for the Nepal Relief Fund.

Well done! Great teamwork!

It’s great being a Lion!    ~ WE ROAR ~
