Lions serving Anchorage
Benton Bay Lions is one of many Lions Clubs in Anchorage. Our mission is Alaska youth sports.
Where there's a need, there's a Lion. Lions Clubs International is the largest service club organization in the world. Our 1.4 million members perform valuable service in 210 countries and geographic areas around the globe.
Lions are friends, family and neighbors who share a core belief: community is what we make it.
Club Meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Currently every meeting will be available on Zoom, with some meetings also held in person at the Mt View Lions Den
Donate to Save our Seawolves
The budget for all of University of Alaska Anchorage has taken a huge cut and in order to stay solvent the Board of Regents voted to cut UAA Hockey, Gymnastics and Downhill Skiing after this 2020-2021 season.
However, the Board of Regents gave fans a way out. If we can raise private funds (cash and pledges) by their February meeting to support the teams for two years, they will reconsider their decision.
You can designate your donation as follows:
SOS (Save Our Seawolves – Save all three sports)
SSH (to save Seawolf Hockey)
SSG (to save Seawolf Gymnastics)
SSS (to save Seawolf Downhill Skiing)

Benton Bay Activities
Split the Pot
Our main fund raising activity is selling split-the-pot tickets during UAA, AASA, and other miscellaneous athletic events. We work well over 100 events during the year raising money to support amateur athletics in Anchorage and many other community support projects. Most other projects are in support of blindness prevention or those who are blind or visually impaired.
Benton Bay Athletic Lions Club Mission
The Anchorage Benton Bay Athletic Lions Club was formed with specific goals in mind and the membership was developed to meet those goals, which were and are:
- To promote the value and importance of youth sports throughout our community.
- To support various athletic activities such as UAA and high school sports.
- To support and further the goals of Lionism in general so that our motto "We Serve" is fulfilled.
