The Colts Neck Lions Club announced at its January meeting that it would be making donations to two worthy organizations.

The club donated $3,000 to Kateri Day Camp, Marlboro, in support of the camp’s current playground project (this will fund a fence to be provided around the playground). And $15,000 will be provided to the Monmouth County chapter of AUSA to fully fund a service dog for a deserving Monmouth County Army veteran.

The donations to the two organizations were made possible through donations that were received at the club’s annual pancake breakfast in October, according to a press release.

The Colts Neck Lions are looking forward to hosting their annual Kentucky Derby Beer, Bourbon and Wine Tasting event on May 2 from 4-7 p.m.

Included in the ticket price is food. There will be a hat contest and a silent auction. Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 after April 4. Sponsorship opportunities are available.

Finally, the Colts Neck Lions Club recently completed screening of 248 Colts Neck Primary School pupils, resulting in follow-up medical referrals for 50 students.

Club members anticipate additional screening activities in the Howell and Tinton Falls school districts in the upcoming months, according to the press release.
