Against a backdrop of freezing rain, snow and wind, Pack 28 pulled off a very successful Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser this past Sunday, January 15th, 2006 (view slideshow).
After expenses, they raised $700.00 - a nice profit for a morning’s work. The Pack is donating half that amount to help Cub Scout groups in Louisiana, affected by Hurricane Katrina. They’re also going to get a 100% corporate match on that donation, resulting in the Louisiana Council receiving $700.00. Pack 28 will also use some of the money to help subsidize their local program.
Many volunteer parents cooked over the hot stoves in the kitchen, while eager Cub Scouts took orders and delivered hot plates of food to 180 hungry customers.
Here are some of the “Fast Facts”: Over 1,000 pancakes were flipped on the griddles; 40 pounds of bacon & sausage were cooked; More than 300 cups of coffee were brewed and poured.
Rob Kaplan thanks all of the volunteer Scouts, Leaders and Parents who worked so hard to make this event a tremendous success. The pancake breakfast was lots of fun, provided some good camaraderie and helped to raise needed funds for a good cause.
Cub Scout Pack 28 provides programs for boys from 1st through 5th grades. For more information, please visit their web site at CrotonCubs.org.
