Tickets are $25 each. Each scout is expected to sell tickets for the event. The event is free for Troop 10 scouts, but all adults should purchase a ticket.
We need scouts to sign up for the upcoming Church Hospitality events we have over the next few weeks. We need a Scout at Each Mass this Sunday to make a quick announcement for our Fundraiser and also a few scouts to be available for Hospitality after Mass.
We ask each family in the troop to provide items for the silent auction. You can do this by donating items or by soliciting items from local businesses.

We need adults to sign up to solicit items from local businesses.
A great place to start is to approach businesses or organizations that you use or frequent regularly. Most places are more than willing to help the scouts!
Here is a letter that can be shared with businesses: Troop 10 Fundraiser 2020 Silent Auction It outlines: - the details of our fundraiser - how the funds raised are used - the kind of items that we are looking for - names of some of past business donors
To avoid approaching a business more than once please check the auction sign-up list above let Meghan know if you solicit from a business not currently listed. Please do consider businesses other than those listed, we just want to keep track so that we don’t overwhelm a company with multiple requests.
Alternately if you have an item or a skill that you can donate to the auction, please consider that as well. Past items have included a week at a family’s summer or ski-home, fresh baked goods, sports tickets, a lesson to learn a new skill such as how to roast coffee beans.
