The Annual Salute to Scouting Dinner raises awareness and support for our powerful inner city Scout programs, and provides enhancements needed to remain relevant in America’s changing landscape. The Boy Scout nominating committee and Board of Directors chooses distinguished individuals to honor in recognition of their leadership and philanthropic support of the Greater Boston Community, their charitable work and business leadership exemplifies the ideals and success of Boy Scouts of America.  The BSA prides itself on being one of the country’s foremost family organizations.

Scout Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent

Scouting has been making a difference in the lives of men and women for more than a century. In fact, today there are more than 50 million living Scout alumni. Altogether that number would be the 25th largest nation on earth. Those alumni have taken an oath “….to do their best…” and to be “Trustworthy” “Helpful” and “Brave.” Many of those individuals have taken that oath to heart. They have enhanced our communities and the quality of life in America. Each year the Boy Scouts of America recognize an elite group of business and community leaders who represent the ideals of the Scout Law in their everyday lives.
