The needs of our community are met through the fundraising events throughout the year. We put the "FUN" in FUNdraising.
In January our club puts together a fun and eventful trivia night! Tables of eight are $160 and includes drinks. Please feel free to bring your own food or snacks. There are 10 rounds of 10 questions. We have a DJ with auction items and raffle baskets, 50/50 drawing, booze raffle and Super Bowl Squares for purchase.
The Lions throw a big party for the Kentucky Derby! Activities include horse racing games, casino games, classic board games, photo booth, hat making station, prizes for best dressed and best hat. Annually held at the American Legion, the Lions Derby Day can accommodate up to 300 people.
The First Capitol Lions host an annual Charity Golf Scramble on every August at Saint Peters Golf Course. The start the day with “the best Bloody Mary’s on the planet”. The cost is $100 per player with 4 people to a team. There are silent auctions, attendance prizes, raffle baskets, 50/50's and much more. There are also numerous sponsorship opportunities if you would like to promote your business or donate to a great cause. Thank you everyone for your ongoing support for the First Capitol Lions and their fundraisers.
By far the most popular fundraiser of the Club. The First Capitol Lions run a beer booth at the St. Charles Oktoberfest to raise funds for the club. Members and friends of members can dress in their lederhosen and dirndles and serve huge steins of beer all weekend. The beer booth is optimally located in the main tent where the authentic German band play so volunteers are part of the action all weekend long.
Twice a year, Lions sell tickets for a Gun Raffle. 400 tickets are sold for $50 a piece. For 21 days, a ticket is drawn and the winner wins a pre-selected gun. The Gun Raffle is a highly desired ticket throughout the county and the raffle usually sells out in days.
TEXAS HOLD EM
The Club hosts Texas Hold Em nights where your donation includes poker chips, food, beer, snacks and beverages. $500 minimum in guaranteed prizes. We see return players time after time due to the level of play, food and service to the players.
