Meridian Optimists combine causes for fundraiser

The Meridian Optimist Club began marketing efforts today for the 3rd Annual Luck o' the Irish Casino Night.

This event is co-produced by the Meridian Firefighters and the Optimist Club. What began as a way to raise money for the Firefighters Pipes and Drum Corps has now blossomed into an annual fundraiser for the Meridian Food Bank and the Meridian Optimist Club Youth Training Center. It also continues to provide support for the Corps as it provides entertainment with a social conscience for the community.

According to co-chairman Rod Shaul, an Optimist, Firefighter and business owner, "We feel that being active in our community and community events are what brings people together, instills positive attitudes and promotes business."

The Luck o' the Irish Casino Night will be held on Saturday, February 26, 6:00 p.m, Redline Recreational Toys, 5353 N. Locust Grove Road, Meridian, Idaho. To find out more about the event, purchase tickets or donate an item for the raffle, please contact Rod at 208.850.9886 or Kim at 208.888.2663.
