Road to Recovery: The Eagle River Lions Club, Sleeping Lady Mountain Lions Club along with the Anchorage Racing Lions, Rotary, Team CC and Elks of Eagle River will be hosting a multi-club event to assist Jesse Basler on his Road to Recovery.

On Jan. 3, 2018, Jesse was shot by a prowler in the early morning hours while checking on his vehicles outside his home on Regency Drive. That early morning shooting has changed Jesse’s life forever. He will require extensive surgeries and extended time off from work. Lions and members of our community are here to help Jesse with the financial burden he and Aubrey are facing.

We are asking the community for their involvement and donations to help support this worthy cause.

We are planning a full St. Patrick’s Day traditional dinner brought to you by those wonderful cooks of Eagle River Lions, along with silent and live auctions. Please join us on March 10, 2018 from 6pm to 9pm at the Eagle River Lions Clubhouse.

Our organizations support the community members with needs such as eye exams/glasses, community Tree of Giving at Christmas, food baskets, scholarships, dinners, and hosting several community fundraising events throughout the year.

We are happy to provide our 501(c)(3) non-profit ID of 92-0168148.

If you have any questions, or need additional information, please contact me at (907) 242-1129.

THANK YOU in advance for supporting the Jesse Basler’s Road to Recovery fundraiser.
