Welcome to the 2016-2017 Optimist Year!
The Arizona District Optimist International is celebrating 60 years of helping the kids in our local communities all over the State of Arizona!

We continue to be
Super Heroes for Kids!

TORCH 2017

TORCH 2017 is a Tucson-wide Youth Appreciation Event and Fundraiser for Cure Childhood Cancer!

Have You Made Your Dime A Day Donation for this Optimist Year?
A once a year, Dime A Day donation of $36.50 helps support the Optimist International Foundation. 

The OIF funds the Essay, Oratorical and Deaf and Hard of Hearing Scholarships, as well as the Club Grants.

Just think, if each one of our 753 members in the Arizona District donated just $36.50 this year, our District would support the Foundation in the amount of $27,484.50.  Amazing!

For the price of about 5 cups of coffee, your support can have a major impact.
