Restaurant Stroll provides tasty samplings
Submitted By Union City Lions Club
On May 17 the Union City Lions Club is inviting everyone to their 9th annual Restaurant stroll. Each $20 ticket entitles the bearer to an appetizer or small plate at 17 different restaurants in the Union Landing Shopping Mall featuring cuisines from around the world, including Chinese, Cajun, sushi, Italian, and much more!
Funds raised by this event help the Lions in their goal of improving the visual health of our community. In 1925, Helen Keller enjoined the Lions Clubs of America to pick up her cause: ?The opportunity I bring to you, Lions, is this: To foster and sponsor the work of the American Foundation for the Blind. Will you not help me hasten the day when there shall be no preventable blindness; no little deaf, blind child untaught??
Today, Lions Club programs here and abroad bring vision screenings and financial aid to young and old. Last December, for instance, St. Anne?s Parish Hall provided the location for a preliminary screening in Union City. Everyone six months and older was checked for astigmatism, myopia, amblyopia (lazy eye) and more. Lions also sponsor a vision screening for Head Start kids, as many as a hundred at a time. Kids who may need to see an optometrist are given vouchers to help pay for an examination.
The Restaurant Stroll is one of the most fun and successful fundraisers of the many Lions Club events throughout the year. Bring your friends or come meet new ones, but don?t miss out on this foodie-friendly happening! Purchase your tickets online and then, on May 17, meet up at the Union Landing Starbucks at 5:30 p.m.
