Sponsored by ChanceyBanner Aug17

The Big Buck Contest is the annual fundraiser that helps the Douglas Lions Club give back to OUR community.  The 22nd Annual Douglas Lions Club Big Buck Contest will be held virtually on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at 8:45pm.  The contest will be held LIVE on the Douglas Lions Club  Facebook page and winners will not need to be present for prizes.  All winners will be announced, posted on Facebook, and contacted following the drawing.  Look for the yellow Lions Club tent to be set up selling tickets on Thursday, Oct. 14-Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021 and be sure to get your ticket BEFORE you land that Big Buck on opening day.

 

“The Big Buck Contest has become a wonderful community project that brings together many people and businesses throughout Douglas,” says Douglas Lions Club President, Joe Sports.  “In order for us to continue to help various non-profit organizations, we have to have support for our Big Buck Contest.  This year, more than ever, we are counting on the ticket sales from the Big Buck Contest to help us donate back to our community.”

 

Last year, money raised from the Big Buck Contest contributed to donations of over $30,000 to various charities such as the Childhood Cancer Group of Coffee County, A Night to Shine, the Hope Center, Beta Sigma Passionately Pink, American Legion Post 515 Wreaths Across America, Coffee County 4-H, FFA & youth programs, and other non-profit organizations.  In 2020, the Douglas Lions Club conducted food drives and gave away over 4,000 boxes of produce from USDA.  Each year, the local Lions Club helps to provide over 500 free eyesight screenings in the community.  Douglas Lions Club contributes to future leaders by awarding several scholarships to students and teachers totaling over $5,000.  In addition to these local contributions, the Douglas Lions Club contributes regionally as well as internationally through five (5) areas of service: eyesight conservation, diabetes awareness, hunger, childhood cancer awareness, and environment protection.
