Ever since Helen Keller inspired us to champion the cause in 1925, Lions have served and advocated for the blind and visually impaired. Nearly a century later, this long-standing mission continues. Six Carroll County Lions Clubs — Deer Park, Freedom District, Greater Carroll, Roaring Run, South Carroll and Taylorsville-Winfield — are sponsoring a golf tournament to raise funds for the Lions Vision Research Foundation (LVRF) at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins. The tournament, which is also raising funds for the American Diabetes Association, is being held at the Oakmont Green Golf Course on May 24, and begins at 7:30 a.m. Cost is $85 per golfer. Sponsors and golfers can contact Lion Ron Kafchinski at 443-536-1521.
