An Overview of Our Fundraising Events
The San Felipe, B.C. Lions Club fundraising activities are a major part of accomplishing the Club’s goals of serving the people of San Felipe. Volunteers are welcome and encouraged to sign up for any of our activities. With such great success this function will surely become an annual event.
Held on the corner of Mar de Cortez and Chetumal, in front of Fat Boys in downtown San Felipe. This is our newest fund raiser and is expected to be great fun for all. Throw soft balls at the target and, if you hit the target, the person sitting over the tank gets dunked – be they good friend or mortal enemy!
A poker walk in town where trotters go to participating bars, are served a beverage and a playing card. Upon returning to the host bar, monetary prizes go to the best and worst poker hands. Lions provide food and door prizes (turkeys) and can buy raffle tickets. This is a fun event for everyone.
Friends, neighbors, bosses or employees are arrested – for a fee. They go to Court and serve time in “jails” which our handy-dandy members have built for the event. In order to get out of jail, they must pay a fine. Great fun!
The Paws Food Cart - The Paws That Refresh sells food, as well as memorabilia at various San Felipe events. The Paws is usually at the Cachanilla swap meet every Saturday serving some great Baja breakfast sandwiches
Blues and Arts Fiesta - Our largest and most labor- intensive fundraiser. Award winning bands from Sonora, Arizona; California; Ensenada; Mexicali and San Felipe entertain audiences for hours and fine artists from all over Mexico and the U.S. display and sell their wares. This event is an awesome undertaking, all done with volunteers.
