Enumclaw Lions hosting annual White Cane Days

Lions Club volunteers will be at the local QFC on May 10 and 11.

The Enumclaw Lions Club will participate in its annual White Cane Days fundraiser Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11.

Each day, club members will be outside the Enumclaw QFC store asking for contributions to support the sight programs of the Northwest Lions Foundation.

For more than 46 years, Lions Club members campaign across Washington and Northern Idaho as part of the annual fundraiser. All proceeds assist children and adults with sight restoration and preservation. A mobile health screening unit provides free check-ups for sight, glaucoma, diabetes and blood pressure to more than 30,000 people.

During the past 10 years Plateau patrons have donated more than $18,000 to the Lions’ cause.

Lions Club members will also have information on hand for those interested in joining the organization.
