When a child or adult in the Rio Grande Valley area is unable to afford direly needed eyewear the Lions Club of McAllen steps in to help. That's why Children's Fun Day serves as a fundraiser to help support children, adults and families in the Rio Grande Valley area. Children's Fun Day will be held Sunday, April 17 at the City Music Ballroom, 522 N. Iowa, San Juan, from 1 to 4 p.m.

"Pronto Insurance's corporate community outreach focus has always been in helping children and families of our community," said Marco Saldivar, Vice President of Sales for Pronto Insurance. "The Lions Club of McAllen has contributed to helping the young and mature members of the Rio Grande Valley families in many ways from its core focus in financially assisting to cover eyewear costs for those in need, to raising funds for children with disability. This organization also assists in maintaining summer camps and educational scholarships to help young adults."

Funds raised during the event will stay to help children and families in the Rio Grand Valley area. The Children's Fun Day will feature Disney characters, slides, rock climbing, balloons, clowns, music, and face painting, among other fun activities and is sure to be a fun family outing. Tickets are $10 per person. Anyone interested in purchasing tickets may call The McAllen Evenings Lions Club at 956-687-6632.
