The Santa Clarita Optimist Foundation has been successful in sponsoring our primary fund-raising event to help Santa Clarita’s youth and families in need.  We sponsor a major annual fundraiser –– Charity Quarter Auction –– that enables the Foundation to fund its many community projects, scholarships, and youth and families-in-need.
The volunteers of the Foundation and the Canyon Country Optimist Club are committed to continuing their important work to support local and regional activities and programs that improve the lives of children.  It is with supporters like you that we are successful at providing hope and positive vision, and bring out the best in kids.


To safeguard everyone’s health, the Canyon Country Optimist Club’s 10th Annual Charity Auction has been postponed.  We are currently working with the venue to reschedule the event.  For the latest information on the event date, please contact Norbert Moniz, Sr. at or (661) 678-3637 or contact Vivian Lawrence at or (661) 252-7230.  Thank you for your support and your patience.  Stay healthy and safe.

The price of admission ($45) includes dinner, coffee and soft drinks, a numbered paddle and ball, AND loads of fun for all.  All guests who participate in the Quarter Basket Auction may bid one to four quarters to win one of 50 baskets donated by local businesses.
