Junior Optimist Club will hold fundraiser for parent in coma

The Junior Optimist Club at Leonardo Da Vinci School in Sacramento is reaching out to help the father of one of their classmates. Working together with the Breakfast Optimist Club of Sacramento, they will hold a Pancake Breakfast on May 16. Proceeds will go towards the medical bills for Chi Cheng who remains in a coma as a result of a car crash in early November.

According to Diane Soule, community liaison for the school, the accident has taken a toll on the students. All parents are involved in the school, plus Mr. Cheng has an even higher profile as the bassist with the Deftones.

The fundraiser will be held at the school. High five to the Junior Optimists. Nice way to reach out to one of your own.
