Please join us for a great morning event, celebrating Scouting in our community! We’ll hear from some great speakers, recognize some Scouts receiving a Lifesaving or Meritorious Action award, and show our support for Scouting in our Community!
Our Annual Million Dollar Day for Scouting is the official kickoff for the Friends of Scouting Campaign which goes from December to May each year. The money raised by this campaign is the largest source of funds for Scouting’s programs. Friends of Scouting provides for all Scouting programs that instill leadership growth and teach young people the skills they will need for life.
Million Dollar Day’s goal is securing commitments to Scouting that total over $1,000,000 by the end of the second breakfast. Scouting’s community and business leaders are active, busy people, so the two events are designed to create an inspiring launch to the campaign. This enables the council to start the year in a strong position while conserving staff and volunteer time, which can be directed to serving the council’s growing membership.
HEAR FROM GREAT SPEAKERS!
Make sure to select Lake Minnetonka District to be seated next to your friends from our District!
