Fundraiser at SunTrust Park

To: Scout PARENTS….


At our last parent meeting, there was tremendous interest in staffing a concession stand for a segment of Braves home games at the new SunTrust stadium. Based on the level of interest shown, we are in the process of confirming that we will indeed commit to work the home games for the first block of games, from March 31 through May 25. That includes 23 games, 1 exhibition game, 1 college game, and […drumroll…] the Billy Joel concert.

 

We need 5 adults at all 26 events, at least 2 hours early (and a leader to be there at least 3 hours early). Remember, we will get a minimum of $500 per event and a percentage of sales over a certain amount. The distribution will likely be that half of proceeds will go to the troop and the other half will be proportionally divided among the accounts of Scouts whose parent(s) worked each event. There is a special parking rate/location for which we will confirm the details ASAP.

 

Very soon, we will set up a schedule for everyone to select dates they are willing and able to work. We would like everyone (even both parents if available) to have a participation goal of at least 3-5 games each (even per scout if possible). Of course, we realize that personal circumstances will vary.

 

There will be a few hours of mandatory training for all who will be working. The training is ~$30 per person. At this time, we haven’t confirmed whether the troop pays for the training or if individuals pay for the training; either way, the training is reimbursed after 3 games are worked. Once we know the training dates/times, we will let you know immediately.

 

Lastly, this is brand new to all of us. We absolutely NEED you to ask LOTS of questions….it helps us figure everything out! But please be patient as we work to find answers.
