Lions Charter Night Feb 2011

lions-charter-night-jan-2011On Saturday February 5th 2011 just over 100 members and guests attended Lion’s Club Santiago del Teide Charter Night at El Marques, Puerto de Santiago. One special visitor was Ray Dobson, a founder member of this branch of the “Lions”.

The compare for the evening was Fred Dudman whose first job was to have all the members and guests sitting down for the hot and cold buffet. As with other events at this location the guests had a very good selection to choose from. The food was well appreciated and a big vote of thanks goes out to the staff for their hard work.

Once the meal was finished it was cabaret time and the first act was George Peña. The New Yorker kept everyone entertained for just over one hour. His comedy bridged the gap between American and British humour plus some very powerful singing. At the end of his act he was called back for more by a very happy audience.

Then Steve Gilbert, President of the Lions Club Santiago del Teide, gave a very short speech and drew attention to a new scheme to help some 50 families who are having a very hard time here in Santiago del Teide. Some of the money raised over Christmas has been placed in a voucher scheme for the purchase of food and is controlled by the local council. The President then proposed a toast to all guests. This toast was responded by Frank Pope who proposed Lions Club Santiago del Teide.

Then followed a currency note draw, name written on a note and placed in the pot. The winning note was Chris Goode who received a large basket of wines and spirits. All money raised from this draw will go to the new voucher scheme.

The evening was rounded off by music from Tuxedo Knights and Glam Slam which very quickly had everyone on the dance floor. This completed a very successful evening.
