The Cotati Lions Club recently served the community by having a spaghetti dinner with all proceeds to benefit a local 4-year-old girl that has HLH and is waiting a cord transplant. This volunteer activity occurred at the Cotati Lion/Scout, Hut 86 La Plaza, Cotati. At the completion of the Lions Club benefit, a check in the amount of $8,003.75 from donations were given to the family of Raven Phoenix Watson.

According to Art Zimmer, Vice President of the Cotati Lions Club, “Money raised on Feb. 8, 2009 was donated for the pressing needs of the Watson family. Lion’s members want to thank everyone who contributed to this important benefit. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in Cotati.” The club served 540 meals.

The Cotati Lions Club has 19 members and meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m. at Cotati Lions/Scout Hut, 86 La Plaza. Lions Clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
