Welcome to Texas Lions Camp On-line!

#GivingTuesday, an international fund-raising effort, is working to promote Texas Lions Camp.  This effort is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for charity and will include your world-class camp in 2015. This year's event and special focus on Texas Lions Camp will be held on Tuesday, December 1, 2015.

If you have had it in your heart to do something special for Texas Lions Camp this year, then make your gift on-line on Tuesday, December 1, 2015. No gift is too small and will be used for TLC's charitable purposes to help children with special medical conditions.

A gift during this time of year, is a deposit towards Summer Camp 2016 and an investment in the lives of more than 1,500 children who have special medical conditions.

Make More Happen Contest

The Texas Lions Camp and Preferred Personal Insurance team places SECOND in the Safeco Insurance make More Happen Contest -

and - we couldn’t have done it without you!

Your votes helped  Texas Lions Camp and the Preferred Personal Insurance team, take the 2nd place prize in the Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Contest, which means Texas Lions Camp will receive $5,000 to further its great work with children with special medical needs.

The $5,000 check from Safeco is in addition to the $3,000 donation that Safeco is giving to Texas Lions Camp on behalf of Preferred Personal Insurance .  You see, Preferred Personal Insurance Agency was selected this fall for a Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award because of their volunteerism and support of Texas Lions Camp.  PPIA member, Whit Talbot, who volunteers at TLC on the Med Staff during summer camp is a firm believer in the spirit of TLC and its mission.

And there’s more!  Because online voting in the past 21 days of the contest exceeded the goal of 28,000 votes, Safeco is contributing an additional $500 to all charities featured in the Make More Happen Contest, bringing the total to $8,500 that Texas Lions Camp will receive on behalf of PPIA.

We are thankful for your support in voting and cheering for us.

And we are especially grateful for Whit Talbot and Preferred Personal Insurance Agency, who support us through their efforts.
