The Uptown Lions Club is the first new club club chartered in New Orleans in 35 years. The club’s mission is simple: to help provide New Orleans musicians with access to affordable health care. While serving musicians may not be a traditional mission statement for other Lions around the world, it makes sense for the Uptown Lions because of the huge role that music plays in the culture and history of the New Orleans community. These Lions identified a need unique to their community and have set out to achieve their goals.
