Photo of the Week: Kids “Dig” Raising Funds for Lions Club Scholarship Program

Many of our clubs hold fundraisers that allow them to award scholarships to local students. We found this picture of a fundraiser for the Ski Town USA Lions Club’s Scholarship Program in the Steamboat Today newspaper.

Kids Dig Helping Lions Clubs Scholarship Fund

Photo by Jack Weinstein/Steamboat Today

During the recent Kids’ Day at Dig This in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, USA, about 150 children aged 12 or younger got to operate a piece of heavy machinery in exchange for a donation to the scholarship fund. In this photo, an eight-year-old girl enjoys her turn using an excavator to move dirt – with help from a trained professional.

What’s the biggest – or most unusual – fund raiser your club has ever done? Leave a comment below to let us know.
