The Sausage Sizzle is Making a Difference this Election Day
As Australia's largest service organisation, Lions Australia promotes youth, provides community service, medical research and disaster relief and has over 1300 clubs across the country, and over 70 clubs across Sydney.
For any Aussies on the lookout for the best election snacks and sausage sizzles this weekend, there's one BBQ to keep an eye out for!
Whilst proud to serve great BBQs, Lions is reminding Australians that it serves much more than just sausages!
"Lions have been serving sausage sizzles for over 70 years now and we are so proud of what these wonderful BBQ's have achieved," says Lions District Governor Elect Jennifer Touzel.
"Lions sausage sizzles are helping people in need, supporting farmers in drought, funding vital medical research, nurturing our future leaders and helping communities get back on their feet after natural disasters," adds Jennifer.
Since the first club was formed in Australia 70 years ago Lions has grown dramatically in size and impact with over 1300 Lions Clubs now in Australia and over 70 clubs in Sydney giving back to the community through a range of projects and programs.
"Every dollar raised by Lions goes back to the community, so this weekend if you purchase a Lions sausage sizzle you can be sure it's for a great cause," says Past District Governor and Lugarno Lion Elvio Munzone.
In addition to the thousands of community service and support projects each year, Lions support a range of other major research projects and support programs including medical research, environment work and emergency disaster relief. Some Lions foundations include Australian Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation, Australian Lions Children's Mobility Foundation, Lions Eye Health Program, Lions Hearing Dogs, Australian Lions Drug Awareness Foundation.
100 per cent of funds donated to Lions go towards funding Lions projects.
