Candy Day 2006 will be held on Friday, October 13th and Saturday, October 14th.  On these two days, Darien Lions and volunteers will be at local intersections and selected retail merchants soliciting donations from passers-by in return for a roll of Lions mints or  multi-flavored roll candy.  All the money collected (less expenses) is donated to numerous humanitarian causes.   Lion Kooch (aka Dennis Kuczynski), pictured at the left, is this year's Chairman.

The Darien Lions Club takes exceptional pride in being the top Candy Day collector in Illinois.  Through the generous contributions of motorists, local merchants, and other individuals, we raised just over $37,000 in 2005.  Many long hours were put in by members and volunteers to attain this level of success.  

What is great about Candy Day, you can collect money to fight against the reasons people are blind and deaf all year long.  Also the money raised helps to make the lives of those who are blind and deaf a little easier and give them some hope.  

If you would like to make a donation to the Darien Lions for the Candy Day fundraiser, please use the email link at the left and send a message to the attention of event chairman Lion Kooch.

In 2005, the following local businesses were contributors, and we most certainly appreciate their generosity.  Please keep them in mind when looking for products and/or services, and tell them thanks from the Darien Lions for supporting our Candy Day program.
