KENDALL – The Kendall Lions Club will have its annual chicken barbecue on Saturday, Feb. 2, with the proceeds to benefit Teresa Leicht and her family. Teresa has been battling cancer. Her husband Peter is a physical education teacher at Kendall Jr.-Sr. High School and has made a big impact on the lives of Kendall students in his teaching and in his roles as coach and athletic director, the Kendall Lions Club said.

Lion Phil D’Agostino has chaired and developed the chicken barbecue into one of the Lion Club’s most successful fundraisers since 2004. The proceeds go directly to the community.

The chicken barbecue is held each year the Saturday before the Super Bowl. The barbecue has helped many Kendall residents with medical bills due to accidents, cancer and other illnesses.

While assisting an individual or family in need is the club’s first choice, the Lions Club has also used past funds to support youth programs in the community, purchase an AED for the fire department and support programs in the school.

Tickets can be purchased from any Lions Club member or emailing Advance sale tickets only, available until Jan. 26.
