TO celebrate the 100th anniversary of Lions Clubs, the Whitford branch will host a mega quiz night to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

The Lions Club of Whitford, which formed in 1975, will host the quiz night on March 10 at the Currambine Community Centre from 7.30pm – with funds raised also going towards community projects.

Club member Don Hall, who joined in 2010, said the non-profit organisation’s role was to serve the community and assist those in need.

“The Lions’ role for the past century is to serve those in need,” he said.

“We provide funds and hands-on assistance for the disabled, sick, needy, and elderly.

“The Muscular Dystrophy Association assists people with the disease, and raises funds for research, and this is what funds raised will go towards.”

Mr Hall said the Lions Club of Whitford knew all too well the important work of the association, with two former members’ son having the disease.

“Two of our now past members, Terry and Heather Brazier, had a son who died from Muscular Dystrophy, and was in great pain before he died,” he said.

“Lions Clubs form a vital role in the community, as an organisation that people and charitable organisations contact in time of need.

“We give an opportunity for those who wish to help others the chance to become part of the organisation to grow, develop friendships, and to serve others.”

The quiz night will include raffles, door and spot prizes as well as an auction.

There will be a licensed bar, no BYO drinks but nibbles are acceptable to bring.
