The Seventh Annual Grey Cup Fundraiser
To Support the Lions Club International Programs
Sun, Nov 27, 4pm
Kickoff is at 5pm
Arthur Murray Dance/Baile Cafe
Salida a Celaya 59
Tickets 250 pesos (goes to Children’s eyeglasses)
Includes one free drink—margarita, wine, or beer
Pregame programming begins at 4pm and kickoff is at 5pm. In addition to fun and friendly rivalry, there will be drawings for great door prizes and a silent auction of restaurant meals as well as the opportunity to win pesos in a football pool. Canadian football teams are comprised of both Canadians and Americans, so the game is of interest to both.
On this special weekend fans from across Canada will descend on BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario, for the 104th playing of the Grey Cup game, the equivalent of the US Super Bowl. In contrast to the game played in the NFL and AFL in the US, which has four downs, in the Canadian Football League there are just three downs to move the ball 10 yards. Other differences include a 10 yard longer playing field (110 yards) and an additional player on the field (12 men instead of 11). There is always intense rivalry between East and West, which adds to the excitement and competitiveness of the two cities represented.
Your contribution of 250 pesos each will go to the Children’s Eyeglass Fund, where exact accuracy in the lenses is most important. This means that children’s eyeglasses very often need to be ordered, in contrast to adults, who usually can be fitted with one of the 37,000 pairs of used glasses in the Lions Club stock.
Eye exams and diabetes testing are offered each Thursday morning at the Lions Club clinic at Reforma 75C, Fracc. Ignacio Ramirez. The offices are on the 2nd floor of the Patronato Pro Niños building. Used glasses are gratefully accepted. In 27 years of giving back to the San Miguel community, the Lions have helped over 18,600 people, young and old, to see better and thus live a more active and productive life.
