Sunrise Optimist Club of Wichita Falls. "Friend of Youth"
The Club was organized in 1956 and has been a friend of youth over the years with programs to help the youth of yesterday and today. Our programs include Our Scholarship program "Young Texan & Texanne", which recognize High School Juniors and enter them in District and State Competition for scholarships. We also reward two local Seniors a $1100 college scholarship who have competed in the Young Texan-Texanne Contests. We also hold a Christmas Party every year for 50 disadvantaged children referred by the Boys and Girls Clubs on Wichita Falls. Our biggest program in our Sunrise Optimist Girls Softball League administrated by Sunrise Optimist Girls Softball 501c3. It has over 1200 participants in a Spring and Fall League plus over 200 coaching volunteer. We build in cooperation with the Wichita Falls ISD the Sunrise Optimist Softball Complex which is home to the League, Local WFISD high school games, along with USA Softball of Texas Tournaments.
Our mission is to help as many people in our communities as possible. We can do this by the many donations and support that we get from the local communities and volunteers.
