Overtown Community Love Fest
In the spirit of giving and spreading hope for the holidays, Overtown Community Optimist Club, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, will host its second annual “Community Love Fest,” a Christmas party for 75 needy families. This year’s event will take place in the Gibson Park auditorium on Saturday, December 15, 2018. More than 100 men, women and children attended last year’s event and were treated to a catered lunch and took home with them gifts, toys and a basket containing a turkey and nonperishable food items. Channel 7’s Lorena Estrada and Omar Lewis also attended and participated in the event.
We are in need of monetary donations in order to offset the cost of this special event. Checks, Money Orders, & Cashiers Checks must be made payable to the Overtown Community Optimist Club, Inc. and mailed directly to: Overtown Optimist Club; Attention: Trina Harris; P.O. Box 12895; Miami, FL 33101.
Any funds raised beyond those that allow us to fulfill our need to fund this event will go to benefit the Overtown Community Optimist Club which was founded in 1993 as a volunteer based organization designed to help inner city youth through mentoring and sports. Since then, it has evolved into an organization that provides an array of services to the community. Its mission is to enrich, empower and develop leaders in the Overtown and neighboring communities.
