2015 Pancake Supper Kickoff!
Pancake Supper Tickets will be distributed to all members of Troop 464 beginning this Tuesday night (Dec 16, 2014)!
This is our one and only fund raiser – We need your help to make this a successful event, so that we can help to fund our scouts and troop!
1.Each Scout will receive a minimum of 50 tickets to be sold at $6 each ($300 total). Scouts can receive additional tickets in groups of 50 at any time from Mr. Hergert, Mrs Patino, Mr Hamlin, or Mr Zamora.
2. Scouts should always use the buddy system when selling tickets… never go selling door-to-door alone.
3. If a Scout sells at least $300 of tickets, he will earn 150 points to his Scout account for future Scout-related events (summer camp, fall camp, etc.). Any tickets sold above the $300 will earn half a point toward his account. For example, if Johnny sells 60 tickets, he will receive 180 points in his Scout account. The Scout must sell at least $300 worth of tickets from individual and group sales in order to receive any points in his Scout account. Otherwise all proceeds go toward the Troop fund.
4. Individual Sales Contest – Corporate sponsors are funding a cash sales contest for the top individual ticket seller. Tickets sold at group sales events (see Item 5 below) are not eligible for the sales contest. The scout selling the most tickets in individual sales as of Tuesday, March 3 will be awarded a cash prize. This cash prize is separate from the scout credit mentioned in Item 3 above.
5. Group Sales and Turning In Ticket Money information will follow at a later date.
About 50% of the proceeds of our Pancake Supper & Auction come from the auction portion of our event. The key to a successful auction is popular auction items. As a result, every Scout is expected to bring two auction items for the pancake supper auction. Auction items can be delivered to the scout house any Tuesday night prior to the event.
Rather than purchase two items, this year we are stressing that you solicit auction item donations from local businesses and employers. In additional to being less of a financial burden to the Scout families, it will also improve the quality of auction items we receive. A donor letter is available to any business who requests documentation. The final date for auction items will be announced come at a later date.
