The Optimist Club of West Bend Scholarship Raffle is held to raise money for the annual Fran Wajer Memorial Scholarship. Only 500 tickets are printed! A total of $1,250 in cash prizes is awarded 10 lucky ticket holders. The drawing usually takes place in May or June on a Sunday of our Brat Fry.
Optimist Club Brat Fry
The Optimist Club has at least one Brat Fry a year. Usually held the first weekend in May at Sausage Plus in West Bend and sometimes also the first weekend in June. The brats, hot dogs and burgers are all purchased from Sausage Plus and are a hit with the local community. We also splurge and get buns from Hankerson's Country Oven, another local favorite! Funds raised supports our Club's events.
Annual Nut Sale
High quality nuts and candy sold every October by club members is a favorite fundraiser! A variety of tins are sold and include fresh gourmet mixed nuts, jumbo cashews, chocolate tuttles and caramel corn with almonds and cashews. These arrive in time for the holidays and make a great gift!
