Dinner is served from 5:30 to 6:00 pm. The program begins at 6:00 pm and ends at 7:00 pm. Hope to see you all there!

D DAY NORMANDY

Our guest speaker is Dwayne Lee discussing D Day at Normandy. Mr. Lee will be giving a photographic presentation on his trip to the beaches used June 6, 1944, by the US military and allied forces to storm Normandy, France on what is known as D-Day, in order to free the French from Hitler’s German reign. Mr. Lee is a professional photographer. You will see how the beaches look today, and the many memorials and museums created by the French to remember the fight for freedom and honor the thousands of Americans and allied solders killed, in what is history’s largest military invasion by air, land and sea.

 

Please join us for Breakfast and enjoy the camaraderie with Colleyville Lions!

THE PHILANTHROPY LAB

SPEAKER: Reilly Brooks, Past Leo President

What They Do

The primary goal of The Philanthropy Lab is to ignite students’ interest and participation in philanthropy. We engage college students in philanthropy by giving them the tangible responsibility of directing real money to nonprofit organizations in the context of full-credit undergraduate courses.

Partner Schools

Started in 2011, The Philanthropy Lab and its donor partners have given over $8.1 million to build philanthropy education at twenty-five universities across the United States. More than 2,500 students have participated in philanthropy courses affiliated with The Philanthropy Lab.

Support A Course

The Philanthropy Lab provides the initial opportunity to jump start these innovative educational experiences. The program aims to help universities find long-term donors like you to support students’ practical giving experiences, so that we can continue to spread real-world philanthropy education to additional universities.
