We Serve


Sparks Greenbrae Lions was one of the three finalists in the Sparks Chamber of Commerce "Non Profit of the Year" category in 2009.
Sparks Greenbrae Lions Club really is the "Biggest Little Lions Club!".

King Lion Suraj, Donna and The Travel Center organized a fundraising cruise on board the new Mariner of the Seas to the Mexican Riviera in March 2009. Members of the Fallon Lions, Sparks Greenbrae, Reno Arch and Ruby Mountain Clubs got together and raised $2100 for the Student Speakers Foundation. Next year, we are looking at an Alaskan cruise for some more fun-fundraising for fellow Lions, their friends and family.

Joining a Lions Club is beneficial to both the member and the club. The benefits are realized only when there is total commitment and involvement by both parties. For more information call . . .
