Optimist Club of Aurora

The Aurora Optimist Club is a service organization operating within the community of Aurora.  The club is governed by Optimist International receiving it's charter in 1985 . The primary purpose of an Optimist club member is to assist youth in the community involving sports, arts, education, medical and any other needs that may arise.

The goal of an Optimist is to "bring out the best in kids". This has been the motto since 1919. Club members are motivated to commit their time and resources whether it be for fundraising activities or various programs involving the youth of Aurora. All funds raised are allocated to the youth in Aurora only.

Our major source of Fundraising are the events we participate in using our Mobile Kitchen. Upcoming is the 5th Annual Beer Tasting / Silent Auction event, to be held May 11th, please join us if you can. We have other individual events partnered with various community groups and Town of Aurora programs that allow us to raise funds as well.

With the funds we raise we are able to:

  • Offer scholorships to Aurora high school students
  • Sponsor the Aurora Youth Art Festival
  • Host the Annual Chess Tournament for Aurora schools, grades 1 - 8
  • Snacks for School Programs
  • Partner with STAPLES to provide school supplies to local children in need of assistance
