Milford Lions Club announces successful golf tournament

The Milford Lions Club hosted their 20th annual Leonard B. Donahoe Golf Tournament June 19 at the Rookery North in Milford.

During recent years, the Milford Lions Club has provided computers adapted for use by individuals who have visual impairments. They also work with disabled veterans to ensure they receive eye exams and glasses through an affiliation with the Home of the Brave.

The Lions Club also provides eyeglasses and eye examinations for needy local residents and school children. They support the Lions Eye Bank of the Delaware Valley, Lions Vision Research Foundation and the Leader Dogs for the Blind Program and Campaign Sight First II to eradicate preventable blindness.

Fundraisers throughout the year, like the golf tournament, help fund these efforts to make a larger impact with community funds.
