Lions Clubs hold White Cane Days fundraiser

   Lions Clubs throughout Washington will conduct their annual White Cane Days event on May 5 and 6. The event rallies support and raises funds to conquer and treat sight impairments. Lions Club members in the two-state area will be stationed at shopping malls, street corners, and high-traffic areas, encouraging people to make a donation in exchange for a symbolic white cane pin and information about sight conservation. Since White Cane Days started in 1969, it has raised over $6 million to provide financial support to Lions sight programs, including the Northwest Lions Eye Bank and five Low Vision Clinics that serve needy children and adults with sight impairments. Also benefiting from White Cane support is the Lions Health Screening Unit.
