We are a local service club that serves the Scottsbluff-Gering area. We raise funds through our annual basketball tournament and are able to put 100% of those funds back into the communities we serve. We help aid those in need with eyesight needs. This could be exams, frames, lenses and even bigger surgeries if we have the budget necessary to assist. In addition to our fundraising efforts we also help support the National Night Out, Kidz Explore and the Monument Marathon. Our basketball tournaments is held every February and typically draws about 80 teams to our area. This helps fund our efforts for the year as well as fill our local hotels and restaurants for the weekend.

We also offer local sight screenings for children in grades K-12. We do this at least once a year and service area schools that are interested. Past participants are Scottsbluff Public Schools, Gering Public Schools, St. Agnes, Community Christian, Mitchell Public Schools and Morrill Public Schools. This is a chance for schools to offer sight screenings for their students at no cost to the participating school or the child. The screening shows whether or not the child should go see a professional for further diagnosis.
