To celebrate the end of the club year they are running a special Floreat Lions In My Community Initiative 2018 increasing the sponsorship prize from the usual $500 to an amount up to the value of $10,000.

- Building social connection/cohesion in the community
- Improving physical and mental health and wellbeing
- Improving the natural environment or community infrastructure/facilities
- Increasing the active and meaningful participation across the local community
Examples of eligible projects are:
- Bringing neighbours together to build a community vegetable garden.
- Establishing a friendly neighbourhood initiative - bringing local community members together to talk about and plan ongoing ways to bring people together.
- Set up costs for a playgroup and/or interest group that brings in people across communities.
