Vernon Lions Club 2019-2020 Activities
July 6 - Ducks for Dogs - The Vernon Lions Club held their first annual duck race to raise funds for BC Guide Dogs on July 6, 2019.
Visitors to the event enjoyed Face Painting by Crimson Oath Tattoo, a fish pond, children's coloring contest and a draw by Family First Optometry, family games - the three legged race was a hit, and BC Guide Dogs provided a maze and two beautiful Guide Dogs, Winston and Mac, to take blindfolded people through. A total of $15,000.00+ was raised. Our winners are: 1st prize $1000 - duck #2275 to Enderby, 2nd prize $500 -duck #0900 to Lumby, 3rd prize $250 - duck #0279 to Vernon and Lame Duck $100 - duck # 2302 to Lake Country. Congratulations to all. Thank you to all who purchased tickets and attended the event - with your help someone in the Okanagan will be receiving the gift of independence with their dog.
