Boise Noon and Meridian Optimists join for Wheel event

The popular game show Wheel of Fortune rolled into the Boise Factory Outlet Mall on Saturday, June 21 and the Boise Noon and Meridian Optimist Clubs joined forces to serve refreshments to thousands of hopeful contestants. Approximately 160 people made it to the stage for auditions and free prizes. They may be called up for a screen test when the Wheel auditions return to Boise in the fall.

Cindy Wall, President-elect, Boise Noon Optimist Club spearheaded the event along with Gary Arbaugh, Boise Noon Optimist and CBS employee at KBCI Boise. Meridian Optimist Club members provided extra hands for the event.
