Our club now has two fundraisers each year to provide funding for our projects and monies we donate to other groups.
Our first and main fundraiser of the year is during the Christmas Holiday season selling poinsettias. We have the most beautiful poinsettias grown locally from Mor Farms, Inc. We sell to everyone in the community including businesses. We even deliver to you or will make arrangements for pickup, if necessary. We have sold poinsettias for over 20 years in Las Cruces as our main fundraiser.
We have added a second fundraiser that began in 2012. It is our Las Cruces bicycle ride in April. Our first ride in 2012 was called the Century Ride to follow the 100 year New Mexico celebration. Our 2nd year ride was called “Tour de Optimism” and has been called that since.
Donations: We are a 501C3 which means to support and provide the programs for the kids in our community, we must raise money for our budget. Our fundraisers are our main resource. We will always accept donations. At this time, we can only accept checks written to the Optimist Club Las Cruces and mailed to:Optimist Club of Las Cruces PO Box 16406 Las Cruces, NM 88004-6406 Please make note on your check that is is a donation. You will receive a receipt for your gift. We hope to eventually have the ability to receive monies in other ways besides checks. We thank you for your gifts and patience.
