This is the official website of the West Flint Optimist Club which was founded in 1963. We raise money to support several local charities that support children. A few of our benefactors are Whaley Children’s Center, CANUSA Games, Old Newsboys of Flint, YMCA of Greater Flint, University of Michigan – Flint Scholarships and many others.
Our best fund raising event is $5000 Raffle. The raffle is actually a reverse raffle, meaning that the last ticket drawn is the winner of the $5000. The first ticket drawn and every tenth ticket win the cost of the raffle ticket. A separate ticket which includes dinner for two with drinks at our event held at the Atlas Valley Country Club.
Peter Venos is our current President.
Meetings Thursday @ 7:30AM
