Lion Gerald Keil (at right) buys the first tickets to support the South Dakota Lions Foundation. The tickets went on sale at the first fall meeting of the Belle Fourche Lions Club this week (9/12/13), and club Secretary Del Neumeister makes the transaction. A drawing for eight cash prizes will be held in January, and the Grand Prize winner will rake in $2,000. Second prize is $1,000 and 3rd Prize is $500. Plus, there'll be five $100 cash prizes. Tickets are $5 each; five tickets for $20, or -- the best deal: TEN for $25.
Lion Tail Twister Rick Walton was heard to say, "Lions are benevolent, Lions are dedicated, and Lions are smart! That's why I bought ten tickets for just $25!" Collected funds will support the the South Dakota Lions Foundation, which promotes early detection as an important step in helping to prevent the development of blindness, deafness, diabetes, and other serious conditions.
