"Hunting for a Cure"

The collection of eyeglasses for recycling is an on‐going, year‐round program involving Lions throughout North Carolina. Reusable plastic frame glasses are sent to a Lions Recycling Center where they are cleaned, tested, classified and sent abroad to medical missions and welfare agencies for redistribution. Metal frame glasses and scrap metal are sold to a refinery and the redeemed cash is used to help fund the needs of the visually impaired.


Camp Dogwood

Your support of the Kenansville Lions Club Big Buck Round-up enables us to assist and empower blind and visually impaired residents as well as continue our work in preventing vision loss in our North Carolina communities. With help from our sponsors and participating hunters, our club is able to provide the less fortunate in our community with eye exams and glasses. We are also able to help with clinical eye research, the 21st Century mobile screening unit that travels from Murphy to Manteo, Camp Dogwood, and the VIP Fishing Tournament.

About Us

Kenansville Lions Club

Annual grants are provided to the North Carolina Lions VIP Fishing Tournament that attracts over 500 blind and visually impaired people, along with their guests, ages 12 to 91 to the Outer Banks. The tournament which draws people from 77 counties is the largest gathering of blind and visually impaired people in North Carolina.

Local Lions Clubs work with NC Lions, Inc. to provide free vision and hearing screenings in communities across the state. NC Lions, Inc. funded the purchase of the Mobile Screening Unit that is scheduled by Lions Clubs throughout the state. Through the early detection of vision problems and education of our citizens we hope eliminate the loss of vision.
