The Lion's Scholarship Fund is a special Project of the Fort Myers Beach Lion's Foundation which was set up in 1993 and has been awarding local scholarships every year since. The Fund receives separate tax deductible donations from the public and is augmented by proceeds from the Fort Myers Beach Lions Shrimp Festival the second weekend in March every year. "Lions are proud of their record of never using any of the funds donated to the Foundation for administration or fund raising." Patsy Dorsey Foundation Past President noted. "
The Fort Myers Beach Lions are accepting applications for their 2016 “WE SERVE” scholarships. Cash awards for college or vocational educational assistance are given to local students who demonstrate ability, need, and a solid record of community service. Applications for this year Please make sure you receive an e-mail confirmation after you send in the application. All completed applications must be postmarked no later than June 10th, 2016.
This is the 26th consecutive year that the Beach Lions have helped local students achieve their goals with scholarships. Scholarships funds come from the fundraising efforts of the Lions club. "We welcome anyone wishing to participate in helping our community to join our Lions Club since together we can multiply what just one person can do! To join us for a dinner meeting please email firstname.lastname@example.org " said Scholarship chair Darby Doerzbacher.
