Cub Scout Pack 199 - Annual Fundraiser

            Selling Christmas Wreaths for the Holiday Season has been a very successful fundraiser for our pack.  We do our fundraiser September through Mid-October each year.  All of our Wreaths and Holiday Items are delivered to the pack in Late-November, just in time for us to distribute over the Thanksgiving Holiday Weekend.

           All the money raised is used to fund our scouting program.  Our Pack Committee, Leaders, & Volunteers, work very hard to give our boys the best program we can.  Our committee works on a budget every year to fund our program,  encompassing registration fees and a fundraiser.  The money raised helps us to cover the pack’s cost of needed items such as equipment purchases, upkeep, and supplies that aren’t covered by the registration fee, as well as to help defray the cost of events and trips.  Our pack is very active and our scouts enjoy and look forward to the many activities and camping trips that we do.   

Information: 

  • Each Scout must either sell 9 products (not including lights or hangers) or the parents must pay the $100 opt out fee.  Each sibling must sell an additional 4 products (not including lights or hangers) or pay a $50 opt out fee.  
  • For every product sold over the 9 (or 13 if there is a sibling) the scout/sibling will get 50% of the profit from those sales put into their scout account that they can use to pay for pack events.  
  • Scouts will also have the opportunity to earn additional money for their scout accounts by participating in the Pack presale events at Sacred Heart, St. Agnes, and the Perkasie Firehouse.  Scouts will earn 50% of the profit from those sales allocated based upon their number of shifts at these events. 

IT IS A REQUIREMENT OF PACK 199 - THAT EVERY FAMILY MUST PARTICIPATE IN OUR FUNDRAISER.
