HUMBLE NOON LIONS ANNUAL CHILIFEST & CAR SHOW OCT. 2
- Written by -
Members of the Humble Noon Lions Club Foundation will be hosting their annual Chilifest & Car Show at the Humble Civic Center Arena as part of their continuing fundraising efforts. Everyone is welcome to come look at cars, taste chili, and vote for their favorite. The cost is $5 for all the chili you can eat. Entertainment will also be included. It is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon with the family. Funds raised will be used to provide free eye exams and eye glasses to children of need in the Humble ISD. Last year the Humble Noon Lions Club was able to provide free eye care to over 200 HISD students through their fundraising efforts. In addition to free eye care, the Humble Noon Lions Club contributes to various requests for assistance from community organizations. In the past year the Club donated funds to HISD for the purchase of sport equipment for visually impaired students. According to Tony Austin, President of the Humble Noon Lions Club, “Money raised on October 2 will allow Lions to meet pressing needs in our community. This is one our major fundraising events during the year. Lions members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community.” Austin also mentioned that “We are accepting applications for event sponsors, individual cookers and cooking teams, vendors, and cars. Anyone interested in participating in the event can contact us by visiting our website www.humblenoonlc.com” or by calling Lion Rose at 281-852-3171 or Lion Joe at 281-358-4814. Car Entrants may call Herb G. at 281-852-4610. The Humble Noon Lions Club meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at noon at Christopher’s Italian Restaurant in Humble. The local Lions Club is a group of men and women who are dedicated to serving our local community through assistance to children in HISD.
