Group raises funds through event for seeing eye dog to assist local resident.

The Little Neck Douglaston Lions Club held its annual dinner dance on Nov. 24 at Leonard's of Great Neck.

Each year, the group hosts the event as a fundraiser to pay for a seeing eye dog through the Guide Dog Foundation to assist a local resident in need.

Carolyn Meenan, the group's president, said this year's event was the largest ever, drawing more than 200 people.

At the event, the club presented its Man of the Year award to Supreme Court Justice Peter O'Donoghue, Lion of the Year to Christine Kempski and Community Service Award to Bernard Karoff.

"We sincerely thank all who have helped us make this year's event one of the most memorable and particularly thank our gracious and wonderful honorees for all the hard work they do for our community and the help they gave us in making this such a successful event," Meenan said.
