Locally, Lions Club members support a variety of youth programs such as Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, Little League Baseball, Youth Basketball, Youth Wrestling, Youth Soccer and 4-H programs (through the purchase of animals at the auction, and through support of the 4-H Sacramento and Washington Leadership programs).

The proceeds from our events provide over $15,000 per year in scholarships to deserving Amador area students, and also support Guide Dogs for the Blind.

Our primary fundraising events are...


Beer Both
