Pack 15 of Madison, Mississippi (Jackson,MS) raised $832 in a One
Hour Bake Sale Auction. They had (4) eight foot tables full of
goodies that were baked by the cubs with a a parent helping as
needed (I have never new that Krogers had foster children).
All of the monies raised went to the Den's. The more that the Den's
baked the more money they received. Everything was auctioned off.
The highest price paid was $32 for a Pumpkin Cake with ballons all
around it. The lowest items went for $2 but most items were sold in
the $10 to $15 range.
The Cubs are told to bring Grand Parents, Aunts, Uncles and any
family member they want. I was amazed they had more Aunts & Uncles
than anybody else.
Pack 15 is a large pack with over 140 Tigers and Cubs (37 Tigers).
Only 79 came to the Pack meeting due to bad weather. But they had
over 300 family members show up!
Your unit may not be as large but even a pack with 25 cubs could
raise a few hundred dollars. Try this great fund raiser for the
Den's and stop spending your own money!! Unless you buy your son's
cup cakes for $15, like someone I know did!
