On Saturday, June 2, 2012, the Miami Springs/Virginia Gardens Optimist Club (MSVG Optimists), along with the Biscayne Lady Yacht Charters and Incredible Fish, once again joined forces to host their annual “Kids Day Out” Eco-Tour, an opportunity for young children to experience one of the many great pleasures of South Florida: the natural beauty of Biscayne Bay.
This was the seventh year that the MSVG Optimists host the “Kids Day Out.” Each year, this event gets better, as the MSVG Optimist Club continues its mission to positively influence the lives of South Florida’s youth. Throughout the year, the MSVG Optimists raise money to support community youth programs, activities and groups, from sports leagues to safety education to civic involvement.
The “Kids Day Out” Eco-Tour kicks off the season for the Club’s signature fundraiser: the Miami Springs/Virginia Gardens Dolphin Classic and Community Fish Fry. Now in its 11th year, the Dolphin Tournament will be held on Saturday, July 14th. Team Registrations are now open for the Tournament, which will boast more than $10,000 in cash and prizes, but slots typically fill quickly. For more information on Kids Day Out, to participate in the Fishing Tournament or to support the Miami Springs/Virginia Gardens Optimist Club, please call at 305-799-2455, 305-345-1019 or visit www.msvgoptimist.com.
Originally founded in 1948, the Miami Springs/Virginia Gardens Optimist Club is the local arm of Optimist International, and is a non-profit, all-volunteer service organization committed supporting the youth of our community.
Carrying the motto “Bringing Out the Best in Kids,” Optimists conduct positive service projects that reach more than six million young people each year. To learn more about Optimist International, please visit the organization’s website at www.optimist.org.
