City of Hope
Lion Street has been honored to support and be an active member of City of Hope for years.
City of Hope is a pioneer in the fields of bone marrow transplantation, diabetes and numerous
breakthrough cancer drugs based on technology developed at the institution. Lion Street’s Royce
Imhoff currently serves as Chairman of the Life Insurance Committee and will be honored with
the organization’s Spirit of Life Award in 2019 for his philanthropic efforts.
Micato One for One
Lion Street chose Micato as the safari outfitter for our Owners incentive trip to Kenya, Africa, in
part because of Micato’s One for One program. With its One for One commitment, Micato Safaris,
in partnership with AmericaShare, matches every safari it sells with payment of all school fees for
a child in need, a child in Nairobi who would otherwise stay home due to extreme poverty.
Nyumbani Children’s Home
During Lion Street’s Owners incentive trip to Kenya, Africa, we visited and made contributions
to the Nyumbani Children’s Home. Nyumbani is a refuge for HIV/AIDS-affected children
and a recognized world leader in providing HIV/AIDS services to children and affected families
Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities
Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI) is a youth baseball program operated by Major League

supporter of this outreach program.
