Ladies Auxiliary

Eland Club of Saint Augustine Elks Lodge #829
Established 1938

Our mission is to support Elks Lodge #829. The Eland Club is comprised of a dedicated group of spouses of Elks Lodge members. We have an impressive history of fundraising and for the past two years, we have sponsored five St. Augustine children at the Florida State Elks Youth Camp each summer, given out scholarships to local students, and donated over $10,000 to charity.

Other beneficiaries of our work are:

Florida Elks Children’s Therapy Services
Florida Elks Youth Camp
Council on Aging
St. Francis House
Betty Griffin House
St. Gerard House
Kids Bridge

Our primary fund raisers each year are:

A garage sale in January
A Past Exalted Rulers Ball in February
The Luau Dance in June or July

As an auxiliary organization we also provide support to our Lodge, and throughout the year, we assist the Elks with their various activities. Joining the Eland team gives you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many children, in our Lodge, and the community in which you live. By joining forces with the Florida Ladies of the Elks (FLOE), we have an even greater impact on the live of Florida’s children. Nationally the value of the Elks’ charitable works, since their inception in 1868, is valued at more the four billion dollars. And it is not all work. We socialize after meetings, attend Elks functions and support each other in times of trouble.

Our club meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30 pm in the Lodge.
If you are the spouse of an Elk, we invite you to join.
