Optimist Night Out

August 2014 Location TBD

Join the Mt. Pleasant Optimist Club at a local restaurant to raise money for kids in Isabella county.  When you bring the flyer we will provide into the restaurant specified on the date of our fundraiser, the restaurant will donate a portion of your check back to the Mt. Pleasant Optimist Club.  This is an easy way to raise money for our community.  Check back for more details!

What Optimist Clubs do?


Optimist Clubs are dedicated to “Bringing Out the Best in Kids” and do their part through community service programs. Since each Club is autonomous and run by members in their community, Optimists have the unique flexibility to serve the youth of their area in any way they see fit. Optimist Clubs see a need in their community and react to it.


Optimists conduct 65,000 community service projects each year, spending $78 million in their communities. Annually, six million kids are positively affected by Optimist programs.
