The South St. Paul Lions Club sponsors a Calendar Raffle each year. Nearly $7500.00 is donated to our community and nearly $7,500.00 is given out in prizes. There is at least one raffle winner per day during the month of February. The largest drawing is for $1,000 which is awarded on Valentine’s Day. The BEST PART is each ticket can win multiple times, as winning raffle tickets are returned to the drawing hopper, and are eligible to win more than once!
Tickets cost $10 a piece, and only 1,500 Tickets are sold and are available from South St. Paul Lions Club members starting in the late fall and are terrific gifts or stocking stuffers. Tickets are usually available for purchase at the South St. Paul Lions Christmas Tree sales lot, until they are gone.
* The 2022 live drawing date, time, and place are TBD
This drawing will be for the ENTIRE MONTH'S WINNERS
Once again, the South St. Paul Lions Club is proud to be a sponsor of the annual GIANT EASTER EGG HUNT with our City of South St. Paul Parks and Recreation Department. While everyone will want to take a chance at finding eggs, this hunt is reserved for those children from 1-year to 8-years old! Of course, parents, grandparents and even older siblings are encouraged to cheer the young hunters on from 9-10AM at KAPOSIA! PARK DATE TO BE DETERMINED FOR 2020. There is a great deal packed within this hour: candy, prizes, a petting zoo and a visit from the Easter Bunny! Mark your calendars, grease the stroller wheels and we'll do our best to make sure the eggs won't be hidden by snow. See you at Kaposia Park, 1028 Wilde Avenue, South St. Paul. Thanks to your generous support to our club, this community event remains FREE TO ALL! See you there.
Kaposia Days is a community celebration, typically held the third weekend in June. The South St. Paul Lions Club is proud to be a Platinum sponsor, and Parade Sponsor. Join us as we lead off the Kaposia Days Grande Parade, and handout treats.
The South St. Paul Lions Club is also proud to be the beer vendor at the Kaposia Days softball tournament. Please support the SSP Lions at the softball tournament. The proceeds of the beer sales support community and Lions International causes.
This fundraising event is held in memory of South Saint Paul Lions who have preceded us in death. We strive to honor and continue the work they undertook before us, to continue to make our community a better place.
For the past several years, we have been blessed with a complete sell out of 144 golfers, and a full roster of volunteers to make this the largest fundraising event of the year for the South St. Paul Lions Club
More information on the the South St. Paul Lions Club Fun Raffle will be posted when it is available.
The South St. Paul Lions Club sells Christmas trees and wreaths in the lot next to Ollum Appliance at the corner of Marie and 12th Avenues.

The South St. Paul Lions would like to thank Mike and Deb Schaeffer, owners of Ollum Appliance for their generosity for allowing the use of their property for this event, and the South St. Paul Packer Football Team for their help unloading the Christmas Tree truck.
