Annual Unit Fundraising Popcorn Sale

Pacific Skyline Council's 2017 Popcorn Fundraiser

 Welcome to PacSky’s 2017 Unit Fundraiser —
your unit can sell popcorn and fund your Scouts’ NEXT GREAT EXPERIeNCE!

PacSky Popcorn logo As this fundraising program has grown in our Council over the years, it has made opportunities come to life for many Scouts that may not have been possible without this coordinated effort. This year there is an increased opportunity for your Scouts to raise money specifically to attend Council Camps Oljato, Cutter & Boulder Creek. Our new incentive program creates a new way for Scouts to pay their own way. If you have this manual in your hands, please count yourself as a Very Special Person – to your Unit, your District, the Council, and of course, most importantly to those Scouts and their families whose program you are helping to make possible by facilitating the Popcorn Opportunities in your Unit. Cheers, you are a hero and to be admired by many. You are the truly the heart of this program and we look forward to supporting you this year. Have fun and please accept Council wishes for a hugely successful Fundraiser for your unit!
