Optimists hold youth football benefit



Ken Wilson, a member of the Nampa Optimists, helps bus tables at the Outback Steakhouse in Nampa on Thursday. The restaurant
donated food and employees donated their time to help the Optimists raise money for their Youth Football program. Kenny Wroten, the
past president of the Nampa Optimists, said about $3,000 was raised to help pay for football equipment, scholarships and cheer leading
uniforms. Wroten said that since Outback started helping the Optimists, the restaurant probably donated $25,000 to the football program
over the years.
