How Do We Earn Our Money?

Our club works the Tropicana Field (Ray's baseball games) at the Papa John's Pizza. We work about 20 to 21 games and for every person (usually six to seven people a game) we earn money. If we work all of the games without requesting assistance from the stadium we earn a bonus at the end of the season. Thinking about volunteering to help us?  Check under the Contact Us page. 

We offer a Family Plan:

Interested in more than one family member being involved in Optimism?  Then you need to contact us to learn about saving with our Chapter.  See the members listing on the Contact Us page and get in touch with one of us for more information.

Join our excitement
The earned money is used by the club to give back to the kids in the community.
Just one of the many things we do in the community with the money we earn.

This was our 12th year of donating to Mason Dixon's Christmas Wish Fund to help provide a better Christmas to a family with kids that needed assistance. Come join us and be a part of something great in the community.

Spaghetti Dinner at Palm Lake Christian Church was a great success!
On December 2nd from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM we held our 2nd Spaghetti Dinner with Raffles, Silent Auction and 50/50. We were successful in beating the amount that we made last year. Hopefully we can say this again next year. Thanks to everyone that assisted us and to those who attended the event.
