The Lions Club in the small town of Christiana, Pennsylvania has a Hillbilly
Crew called the Christiana Clampett's. The Clampett's will abandon their
day jobs and travel in their jalopy across the United States bringing fun
times from the Big Apple to the Hills of Beverly. In 1994, they traveled
Clampett style from Pennsylvania to Kentucky in order to raise money for
Campaign Sight First. The response in 1994 was so overwhelming that the
Clampett's decided to do an even bigger road trip during the summer of 1999
to raise money for KIIDSIGHT projects. They are headed out to promote one
of the four humanitarian concerns of Lionism, preserving sight. The primary
receiver of the funds is KIDSIGHT, which is the photoscreening of pie school
and nonverbal children to help detect and correct their eye disorders.
Using the support of local Lions Clubs and other similar community organizations
along the way, "Granny," "Jeb," "Bo," "Nellie
July," and other kinfolk plan to raise money by staging live performances
and selling souvenirs as they make stops in various towns along the way.
They entertain with Bluegrass music, jokes. and good stories. They often
ask local talent to perform with them along the way. They will offer, for
a donation the right to autograph the 1929 Chevrolet flivver (jalopy), which
is not a reproduction but the real thing. It was discovered, neglected and
rusting, on a farmer's land and lovingly restored Clampett style by "Jeb"
and the family.
Not one penny of donations will defray the costs of this journey, such as
food, lodging, and gas. The "Clampett's" will cover these expenses.
Every cent raised will be donated to KIDSIGHT projects.
What can you do to help the Clampett's accomplish their goal? The Clampett's
need you to introduce them to the public in your area. The Clampett's will
arrive in their Jalopy and entertain your audience. Interviews with the
ClampeWs, and the visual and audio impact that the Clampett's present have
been unique, crowd pleasing events. Together, let's create some airtime
and publicity to announce this significant event.
