Every year Lions and supporters from across Oklahoma converge in Perkins, OK. They come to visit with other Lions and supporters, enjoy a traditional Christmas dinner and hear about all the happenings at the Lions Meadows of Hope. They also come to see some of the rare Lions memorabilia that circulates around the state and often changes hands here at the Christmas party for the benefit of children. In years past, this auction has taken over an hour to complete, but with today’s technology we can distribute pictures of the items before the Christmas party so that you will have a chance to bid on your favorite items online. To make the Auction a success we need pictures and descriptions of all donations by November 16th. You can take a picture of the item and email us the picture at [email protected] along with a description and estimated value of the item.
The annual Lions Meadows of Hope Christmas Party is Saturday, December 8th at the Oak Park Retreat Center at 805 E Kirk Ave, Perkins, OK 74059 Food is served at 11:00am. As an Oklahoma Lion, your commitment to service makes a world of a difference for children in foster care. In the Oklahoma foster care system only 25% of first placements go undisrupted. However, with the exceptional training and support provided to foster parents at Lions Meadows of Hope, our placements have a 96% success rate. Your support makes this possible! So far, Meadows of Hope has given 85 children stable, loving homes. We want to see that number continue to grow. You can help by attending the Christmas party…We also invite you to consider joining our new monthly giving program, Champions for Children. Your support for children in foster care can extend beyond the holiday season and last all year long. Please see the attached form for information about Champions for Children. To RSVP for the Christmas party please email [email protected] by November 30th. Thank you for your generosity! I hope to see you at the Christmas party on December 8, 2018.
Let the joy of giving last all year long…
Become a Champion for Children!
