Friends of Scouting Dinner and Annual Fundraiser

Posted on Feb 8 2016 - 4:38pm

Friends of Scouting Fundraiser & Dinner on February 18 featuring Roger Staubach – seats still available!

Thank you to the many families who have already donated to Circle Ten Council’s Friends of Scouting Campaign, which raises funds to provide underserved, low income families the opportunity to participate in Scouting.  The cost for one young person to participate in Scouting for one year is $290.

Our Friends of Scouting co-chairs, Kelly Heatly and Andy McRoberts, need your help meeting our Troop's goal of $20,000 this year.  Please consider making a generous donation when Kelly or Andy contacts you, or simply email them at the addresses below.

If you give $500 or more, you'll be invited to the annual Friends of Scouting Dinner on Thursday, February 18, at the Omni Dallas Hotel, with Roger Staubach as the featured speaker.  Troop 730 plans to fill two tables at the dinner.  It is always a wonderful evening celebrating the core values of scouting. 

Please consider donating at the $500+ level and join us at the Troop 730 table on February 18.  Please RSVP as soon as possible: Kelly Heatly (Kelly@HeatlyCustomResearch.com) or Andy McRoberts (ajm@mcrobertsinc.com)

Thanks in advance for your generosity.
