Publicize Your CCC Event and Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Optimist International has a series of news releases that Clubs can use in connection
with their participation in international programs. Below are sample news releases
that Clubs can use to promote their CCC events. Please note that the .doc version
enables Clubs to type their information into fields*, while the .pdf files are
for viewing only.
*If your Optimist Club or District wishes to use its own
letterhead, you can remove the Optimist International logo in the document by
opening up the Word document, going to "View," then "Toolbars"
and selecting "Forms." When the "Forms" toolbar appears, click
on the padlock, then click on the Optimist logo and delete it. For those using
