The Hampton Bays Lions Club is a community service organization supporting charitable works in Hampton Bays and East Quogue since 1948.
The motto of the Lion’s Club is “We Serve” and we have worked hard to fulfill that motto. While several local organizations have benefitted from our fundraising efforts throughout the years, our main focus is to raise money and awareness for those who are sight and hearing impaired and those in need of guide dogs.
2019 was a very successful fundraising year for our organization and many benefitted from these resources. Using the generous contributions from our sponsors, the Lions Club was able to sponsor six Seeing Eye dogs for those in our community in need. Three of the dogs were designated for returning wounded Veterans and three for persons with blindness living in our area. These goals were accomplished through the Smithtown Guide Dog Foundation. We financially contributed to Canine Companions for Returning Veterans, scholarships for deserving students in the Hampton Bays and Westhampton districts, local churches, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Little League, Maureen’s Haven, and the St. Rosalie’s food pantry to name a few. We have had great success with these projects in the past; however, we need your help to ensure a successful future.
The Hampton Bays Lions Club will host our Tenth Annual Run/Walk event to be held on September 19, 2021, that will showcase the beauty of our community, promote healthy living, and raise money for our charitable works. We have planned a 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk event that will cross the Ponquogue Bridge and will highlight the exceptional Ocean, Bays, and neighborhoods of Hampton Bays to all participants.
