Re: 02/16/2019 - Cub Scouts Pack 224 Blue & Gold Banquet

They made a charity donation!


Charitable funds: $100.00 donation to American Cancer Society in appreciation for our efforts by BSA Pack 224.

I have the check to ACS and will forward it to our Relay for Life via our Imperial Walkers Team fundraising page.
