Patron Luncheon | March 5, 2020

On March 5, 2020, the power and life changing impact of Kansas City Scouting was on display at the Patron Luncheon - the Heart of America Council's marquee fundraising event. Supported by chairman, Doug Price, our council raised more than $700,000 in support of local Scouting programs. The "Scouting Changes Lives" themed event transformed the Kansas City Convention Center into a Scout Camp experience complete with canoes and campsites.

The event was highlighted by Eagle Scout, author and adventurer, Terry Fossum, who shared his amazing story of growing up in one of the poorest cities in America and how Scouting saved his life and propelled him to a decorated military career and the winner of a survival-based reality series.
