Lions Taking to the Street Corners!
Date:9/24/2008

CHICAGO, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The Lions are coming! Look for them in their yellow vests on the corners 'shaking their cans' Friday and Saturday, October 10 and 11 for Lions Candy Day, all over Illinois," according to Foundation Executive Director Van Stone.

The face of Lionism was changed forever in Illinois in 1952 thanks to the dream of one Lion when Lions began to "man" the street corners giving away small plastic white cane pins in return for donations. Over the years, Candy Day evolved into the candy or mint roll and this program is now in 15 states and Lions in Australia have begun a similar program.

Director Stone further stated that "today over 50% of the funds required to operate the many programs and services of the visually and hearing and impaired directed by the Foundation are funded through this single campaign." The collection of Candy Funds help such Foundation programs as camp lions, low vision screenings, Lions of Illinois research hospital, eye glass collections, hearing aid collections, diabetic eye screenings and the mobile diabetic retinopathy program.

It takes a Lion to put glasses on school children; seek cures involving forms of preventable blindness, collect used eye glasses, send kids to camp, provide for the hearing impaired and be a mentor, if needed. The Lions are 1,300,000 strong in 202 countries of the world reaching out their hands in service. Lions are public officials, teachers, fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, friends and neighbors, joining together to make a difference in the life of your community and for those in need. On Candy Day, October 10 and 11, Lions, Lioness, Leos and friends all over Illinois are asking the public to be part of their magic when they "shake their cans" and join them in their fight for the visually and hearing impaired.

The Lions of Illinois Foundation is a 501(c)3 corporation providing programs and services that annually reach over 18,000 Illinois chi
