The Gabriola Lions Club organizes or takes part in a series of events to raise funds to support the needs of Gabriolans and to contribute to major organizations dedicated to specific causes. Roll up your sleeves, put on a big smile; we have never had so much fun making new friends and giving back to our community, Gabriola Island.

The 23 Annual Concert-on-the-Green was another great success. Held on Thursday, August 8, our opening act was The Vinyl Cafe's Reid Jamieson Band, featuring Reid Jamieson and Carolyn Victoria Mill; the feature presentation was a ROD STEWART tribute by Rod and the Mods, featuruing Brent Stewart. More than 1,100 people attended and over $31,000 raised for our charitable programs on Gabriola!
