"CHALLENGE COIN" FUNDRAISER

The idea behind the "challenge coin" is to increase awarness, promote participation, and give a sense of pride to our cause.

Coins feature the International Lions" logo on one side, and a "reclining" Male Lion on the Reverse in bas relief and engraved "LERF".


Challenge Coin

The "Military-Style Challenge Coin" was presented to the Trustees by Secretary PCC Bob Virgadamo; he explained that if we at LERF promote this, as a group, around the State, we might be able to create a positive influence among Lions: bring back, or at least encourage, "Lions Pride"; increase a sense of camaraderie; perhaps create the possibility of open discussion with non-Lions, which might promote membership; and, at the same time, start a fun and creative fundraiser, instead of conducting another raffle.

The "Challenge Coin" idea was overwhelmingly accepted, and are available at at cost of $5.00 each. These coins can be purchased from any LERF Trustee, or at your local Lions Club Meeting.

Your purchase of one of these Challenge Coins directly supports the LERF and the funds will go directly to the foundation to support eye research.

DOG CRAWL - May 4, 2019

Annual Dog Crawl Fund Raiser

WHAT IS IT

The Dog Crawl is a cute fundraiser contest for our foundation. The purpose of the contest is to generate donations to LERF while at the same time, having some fun. The participants in the "Crawl" are Hotdog Vendors, Participants (hotdog eaters), Sponsors (Donors), and Judges.

The Contestants secure Sponsors to make donations based upon the number of hotdogs each contestant will eat in the contest. All the players moved from one "dog" vendor to the next. When all is done, the person who eats the most hotdogs wins the contest, and the Foundation benefits from the donations.

We travel to various locations and eat hot dogs, etc. Usually two or more at each location. Sides and drinks also count toward the overall donations. He or She who eats the most dogs in the usual five hours becomes the Champion of our Dog Crawl.

For 2019, we were looking for sponsors for those of us who will be "dog crawling" either by the dog, topping, sides and drink or by a flat donation amount with a $50.00 maximum (unless you choose to go higher).

PIZZA PROWL 2018
Pete and Elda's Bar/ Carmen's Pizzeria ~ 93 Summit Ave, Neptune City, NJ 07753

THE PROWL
The PIZZA PROWL was a fun fundraiser contest for our foundation. The purpose of the contest was to generate donations to LERF while at the same time, have some fun.
The participants in the "Prowl" are Prowlers (pizza eaters), Sponsors (Donors), and Judges.

Prowlers secured sponsors who pledged donations based upon how much pizza the Prowler Ate.

Donations were 1) Fixed Amount, 2) Per Slice Amount, 3) Whole Pie Amount

The Judges kept track of the amount of pizza eaten by each Prowler and reported that amount to each Sponsor. The Sponsor was then responsible for fulfilling his/her pledge.

2018 Pizza Prowl

We had eight prowlers for the 2018 event who all did themselves proud. Everyone was able to eat a whole pie and generate substantial donations.

The gang arrived at Pete and Elda's Bar/ Carmen's Pizzeria located in Neptune City just before lunch and they had perfect timing. When they first arrived, the restaurant was empty, but by the time their orders arrived, the restraunt was full.

Participants who ate a whole pie were awarded t-shirts.


Over all, these 8 prowlers raised over $1000 for LERF-NJ.

CONGRATULATIONS!
and
THANK YOU!
