Proceeds from the 24th Annual Tom Frazier, Tee Off for Youth golf outing, held July 23, 2015 at Sugar Valley Golf Club in Bellbrook will further add to the support of Dayton Children’s.
Fred Polizzi, President of Centerville’s Noon Optimist Club stated “the support of our Five-Star Sponsors, 1-800-Got-Junk, You Move Me, Allstate Insurance, Remodeling Designs, McAfee Heating and Air, Monica Stomps – CPA, WesBanco Bank, Tanner Heating and Air Conditioning, Kroger – Centerville and all sponsors has been overwhelming. The Dayton Children’s Hospital will benefit from the generosity at our event. “
This is the thirteenth year that Dayton Children’s and Centerville Noon Optimists have teamed together to assist childhood cancer patients. A special feature of the “Tee Off for Youth” event has been the Children’s Event sponsored by The Fenstemaker Agency of Allstate Insurance. Children who were undergoing treatment or who are cancer survivors enjoy a morning of golf on a real golf course coached by the pro. A fun competition tested the children’s skills in chipping, putting and driving. This year’s event drew 24 children from the ages of 8 – 16 and awards were provided in various categories. Heater from the Dayton Dragons had a great time with the kids.
“We are fortunate to have the Centerville Noon Optimists as a friend to Dayton Children’s said Robbie Mirisciotti Lead Nurse of Children’s Hematology/Oncology Department. Their contribution truly impacts our efforts in making a difference in the lives of our patients.”
At 2015’s event, more than 110 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day of golf followed by a great dinner and the presentation of awards, while raising more than $30,000 for Dayton Children’s and Centerville Noon’s youth programs for 2016.
Please mark your calendars for 2016’s event which is Monday July 18, 2016.
The success of the 2015 Americana Festival was boosted by the Centerville Noon Optimist booth. More than 600 helium balloons were attached to strollers, backpacks, children’s wrists and a few dogs in the first two hours. About 20 club members manned the booth all day and welcomed potential members with many different giveaway items. There was also much interest in the club’s Avenue of Flags and Tee Off for Youth programs. Great weather, great event and much fun was enjoyed by all.

Next Year’s Derby is planned for Saturday, June 1, 2019. If you are planning on attending, please fill out the registration form which will be published below approximately 60 days before the event and bring it to the derby – registration is between 8:00 – 9:00AM. The Fishing Derby starts at 9AM and lasts until 12 Noon. We supply free worms however you are permitted to bring your own bait and lures.

Every spring, the Saturday just before Easter, the club sponsors an Easter Egg Hunt. This fun event is free for children 2-9 at one of the Centerville Washington Park District’s locations (usually Forest Field Park on Centerville Station Road.)
Prizes are awarded to children who find the special gold colored eggs as well as age group prizes.
While the event always starts at 10 am, it is advisable to be there and lined up early. The more than 6,000 candy filled eggs disappear quickly as the children race into the field to uncover all the surprises.
Stick around after the event to have your picture taken with our Easter Bunny.
The 2018 Easter Egg Hunt is on Saturday March 31st @ 10AM @ Forest Field Park in Centerville.
