One of the fundraisers for the club is the annual Fry’s Anniversary Hot Dog sale. Every year Fry’s Electronics has a big anniversary sale at their stores in the middle of May. To attract more customers, Fry’s offers 25 cent hot dogs and 25 cent sodas for their customers in the parking lot. A volunteer organization is needed to setup the tent, cook and prepare the hot dogs and soda. Fry’s provides all of the food, drinks and condiments and the club keeps all of the proceeds and tips collected at the event. All of the club needs to do is provide the volunteers to prepare the hot dogs and cleanup afterwards.
The Milpitas Lions Club has been volunteering for this event every year since 2005. Since its inception, the Milpitas Lions Club has raised more than $16,000 to help those in need in our community. Everyone who volunteers always has a great time. The customers are very friendly and it is a great way to recruit new members and spread the word about Lions volunteering.
