Hi everyone in SCOUTS-Land. Our pack is in dire need of a quick and dirty
fund raising event. We always try to subsidise (sp?, one of these days,
enginers are goeng to lern to spel) our Den Chiefs at summer camp. Because
of certain financial conditions that affected some members of our pack, we
are running short on funds for things like Den Chief subsidies. If anyone
knows of a quick (can be organized and executed within a few weeks), low key
(we have 75 boys and need about $1,000) fundraising event, I would appreciate
a note (to me personnally if you don't feel its of general interest to
1) We have already thought of a Car Wash - it's probably our last resort
because so many other groups in our area are already doing this.
2) With spring sports comming in to full swing, the "Sell Candy at Giant"
type of event is also overloaded at this time.
3) I know I could go to our CO, but our CO is also a civic group that does a
great deal for kids in our area (well beyond supporting scouts). If at all
possible, I would prefer not going to the CO so they can use their money for
other worthwhile efforts.
Our pack and their parents are very involved. All we need is a good idea and
we can take it from their. Your help would be appreciated.
