On July 8th this year the Lions Club of Farnham staged a ‘Summer Spectacular’ to celebrate the Centennial of Lions International and the beginning of the fiftieth year of ‘Farnham Lions’. Almost two years in the planning, the event was a fantastic success and more importantly raised an equally fantastic £40,159.36 all of which will be shared by four youth based beneficiaries: Challengers, 40 Degreez, Frensham Pond Sailability and the Ridgeway School.
690 guests were welcomed to a wonderful location near Farnham, many dressed to support the 1920’s onwards theme, treated to a glass of fizz on arrival, a USA themed buffet, great entertainment, an acclaimed firework display, pre-empted by the arrival of the ‘Tigers’ Freefall parachute team. And the opportunity to win over 50 raffle prizes or to bid for Auction and Silent Auction prizes.
Wise & Co were one of the primary sponsors of the Summer Spectacular donating £2,500 to the Farnham Lions.
