I am reaching out as President of the Hampton Bays Lions Club. The Hampton Bays Lions Club has been supporting charitable works in the Hampton Bays, East Quogue, and Westhampton Beach areas since 1948. Hampton Bays Lions have given to the community in ways such as college scholarships to deserving high school graduates and charitable donations to our local churches, libraries, Dominican Sisters, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, food pantries and little league. Our main focus is to raise money and awareness for those who are sight and hearing impaired and are in need of guide dogs. In this past year Hampton Bays Lions have donated over $13,000.00 to the Guide Dog Foundation on Long Island to be used for guide dogs and now Hampton Bays Lions also sponsor Vet dogs through a sister organization called American Vet Dog Foundation. There are currently four guide dogs teams working in our local area so we feel we have made an impact.
Hampton Bays Lions Club Major fund raising event is our, Over the Bridge 10k Run/5k Walk in September. "Over the Bridge" is the last leg of the greater Westhampton race series. The Course features breathtaking views of Shinnecock Bay over the Ponquogue Bridge. Sponsors receive sinage and a mention in the Southampton Press Eastern & Western Editions. 100% of all the money raised goes back into the community. We have many generous sponsors including my own company, Hampton Watercraft & Marine. Please visit our sponsor
