Brighton Optimist #2ndTuesdayEuchre Check Presented to Livingston County Senior Nutrition

by | Mar 20, 2024 | Club News

Brighton Optimist Club and Eternity Brewing Company recently presented checks to Livingston County Senior Nutrition (Meals on Wheels) totaling $808 from the March 12th euchre night and Eternity Brewing Company’s beer promotion. Meals on Wheels provides homebound older adults with a means of human contact daily by friendly, courteous volunteers. This gives our seniors and their families a sense of security, knowing that someone who cares will check on them.

On the 2nd Tuesday each month at Eternity Brewing Company, the Brighton Optimist Club has a euchre night to benefit a different local charitable organization. One hundred percent of the money generated during the euchre nights is split between the designated charity, and the player prize pool.

The April euchre night (4/9/24) will benefit the Livingston County Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART), a volunteer organization that is committed to the support of Livingston County’s First Responders.

Since December 2021, Brighton Optimist #2ndTuesdayEuchre nights have generated over $21,500 in donations to local charities.
