The Rodeo as a Fundraiser

The Cochrane Lions Rodeo, hosted by the Cochrane Lions Club, is a major fund raiser for our Lions Club. Through the continued support of our generous sponsors and the community and surrounding area, we have been able to donate over $2,000,000 to deserving groups in Cochrane and area.

Whether a donation to youth groups and youth sport, seniors, needy individuals, high school scholarships, or any other need in the community, the Cochrane Lions Club is there to help thanks to your support.

The Cochrane Lions Club annually presents $1,000 scholarships to each of the Cochrane High Schools and makes numerous smaller donations to a variety of causes in Cochrane and area.

We Serve

Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, and more recently, helping in the fight to eradicate measles, but we also volunteer for many different types of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.

Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.

Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring.Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.

Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. Approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs are in more than 140 countries.

Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects worldwide. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.

Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for
immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.

Lions are active. Our motto is “We Serve.”
Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
