Community Bank of Florida was pleased to make a donation to the Leisure City/Modello Optimist Club of Florida. The Optimist Club is a non-profit organization that sponsors many different youth sports, including Football, Basketball, Track and Cheerleading. They are currently affiliated with the Miami Xtreme League, comprised of twenty-two different member parks with over 3,500 football players and 1,500 cheerleaders. Children range in ages from five to fifteen and although the competition is extremely fierce, many local athletes have won championships and have been awarded top prizes in recent years.
In addition to providing sports recreation, the Optimist Club strives to teach kids the philosophy of being optimistic, having an active interest in government and civic affairs, as well as inspiring respect for laws. Their motto is ‘every child is a winner.’ Their funding comes directly from donations, and they are seeking corporate and individual sponsorships. If you would like to help support them, please contact Geneva Josephs at (305) 969-0061.
