About

Our mission includes serving our community and beyond by providing volunteer services and raising funds for humanitarian activities. The festival is our prime fundraiser to support the Louisiana Lions Eye  Foundation and the Louisiana Lion’s Children’s Camp.  In addition, this event provides resources which allow us to supply glasses and hearing aids to those in need in our community and to send handicapped children or children with juvenile diabetes to camp during the summer.
