About Us

Lenexa Optimist Club sponsors this event in partnership with Lenexa Parks & Recreation. Optimists focus on “Bringing Out the Best in Kids”. Proceeds benefit youth programs supported by the Lenexa Optimists in our local community and beyond. Among the many activities and organizations supported are:

  • KU Kids Healing Place
  • KidsTLC – Supporting children and families in crisis
  • SafeHome
  • Urban Scholastic Center
  • Harvesters
  • Camp Quality for children with cancer

Other projects include support for local schools and scholarships to Johnson County Community College. These are just a few of the ways Lenexa Optimists work to fulfill the Optimist International “Bringing Out the Best in Kids” motto.

In addition, the Lenexa Optimist Club along with other Optimist Clubs in Johnson County, sponsors a spaghetti dinner fund raising event to benefit the Optimist International Foundation Childhood Cancer Campaign.

You may have seen our Adopt­a­Spot sign at Hidden Woods Park in Lenexa; Club members conduct a park clean­up three times each year and maintain a memorial bench in the park.
