Going Once, Going Twice, Sold!

Author: Leave A Comment

Gavin was a college student when he first joined the Sydney Chinese Lions Club in 2006. He remained an active member until 2009, when he decided to pursue a career in China. Before he left, he spoke with club leaders about his desire to continue his membership. Lion Gavin promised to pay his dues on time and to return for club functions whenever possible.

The club agreed to let Lion Gavin maintain his membership. And so it went for six years. Sydney Lions would visit with Gavin when they were in China, and Lion Gavin would visit his club whenever he was back in Sydney, but he wasn’t around very much.

Every year, the Sydney Chinese Lions Club hosts a charity ball. This year, the club chose Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) as the ball’s major beneficiary. Lion Gavin adjusted his travel schedule so he could attend his club’s charity ball, which included a fundraising auction.

Of the six items on the auction block, what caught Lion Gavin’s eye was a Cartier watch. The bids rose steadily until they reached A$5,100. At that point, the auctioneer spoke directly to him. “Gavin, if you raise your bid to $6,000, there’s a good chance for you to win.” Gavin made a very generous donation that night, and his new watch will serve as a constant reminder of his home club and his good deed.

Even though his work has taken him out of Sydney, Lion Gavin remains an active and committed member of his Sydney Chinese Lions Club.

Preston’s Blog: Thanks for a Great Year!

Author: Leave A Comment

It’s hard to believe that another successful Lions year has come and gone. It has been a privilege to serve as Lions International President, and to able to see how Lions are making a difference all over the world.

Lions, you responded when disaster struck. You joined the Centennial Service Challenge and, so far, have served over 32 million people through youth, vision, hunger and environment projects. You helped us reach 1.4 million members simply by Asking One. Every day, across the globe, there is a Lion teaching children to read, feeding a family, giving the gift of sight, planting a tree. Lions, you are changing lives everywhere.

Thank you for your service to the community, and thank you for strengthening the pride! Here’s to 100 years of service — and many more!
