Below is a list of our popular annual fundraisers. Some of these are events while others are based on selling products or services. We encourage you to learn more about the River Hills / Lake Wylie Lions Club events (by selecting the titles) and hope to see you soon!


  • Annual Raffle –Our Annual EMS Raffle benefits the River Hills, Lake Wylie EMS. The winner of this raffle takes home $10,000 (minus taxes). The EMS receives the remaining proceeds.
  • Christmas Tree Sale –Every year, from late November until Christmas, our Lions Club sells North Carolina’s finest, freshly cut Fraser Fir trees and wreaths. Tree sales always start on the Monday before Thanksgiving and continue until December 15 while inventory lasts.   Volunteer Lions will also deliver the trees.  
  • The River Hills/Lake Wylie Lions Charity Golf Tournament –The Lions Charity Golf Tournament is an annual charity fundraiser tradition played at the River Hills Country Club.  It’s open to everyone and the registration does not favor either Lions or Country Club members. Most players view it as the most enjoyable yearly round of golf at the Club because of its numerous prizes, vendor courtesy tents, and a special recognition dinner.
  • Pancake Breakfast –The Pancake Breakfast is held on a Saturday Morning, the first or second week of December at Camp Thunderbird and features Santa and children’s activities.
  • River Hills / Lake Wylie Directory –Our largest fundraiser, the River Hills Lions Club Directory, provides a unique telephone and e-mail address directory for River Hills residents and Lions Club members. The drive kicks off in late January and new directories arrive in late May
