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. "
