Lions Club President Kevin Cason (left) presented Gary Toso (right) of Summit Ridge a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 2, tablet cover and memory card. Mr. Toso was delighted to have the winning ticket. The raffle drawing was held Dec. 18, 2012, at Beny's Restaurant. The Cortez Lions Club is thankful and very appreciative to everyone who bought tickets for the raffle. Funds from this raffle fundraiser are committed for eyeglass assistance grants. Due to the increase of people in the community applying for eyeglass assistance from the Cortez Lions Club, grants become available or are limited as funds become available. The Cortez Lions Club was able to provide assistance to 18 people in 2012. The Cortez Lions Club is a not-for-profit organization and depends on community support and donations to continue to provide eyeglass assistance.
