Good Scout Award Luncheon postponed
The Dan Beard Council’s largest fundraiser of the year has been postponed from March 18 to May 19, at least for now. The luncheon, which annually is attended by more than 1,000 supporters of the Boy Scout movement in Greater Cincinnati, was set to honor Hightower Petroleum CEO Stepehen Hightower and feature keynote speaker former Cincinnati Reds superstar Sean Casey. Pre-event fundraising was going well, with $342,000 raised toward a goal of $531,000. Fundraising will continue — even if the event has to be postponed again. Earlier this year, the council hosted one of its most successful Eagle Court of Honor fundraisers honoring local businessman Tom Anderle.
