Pack 82’s has a budget of $320 per scout for the 2023-2024 year. This year, we are fortunate to have enough excess funds to provide an $105 discount to every scout. The remaining amount will be raised by participating in the Popcorn Fundraiser or paying the Opt-Out fee. Below are the goals for this year.

Sales Goal is $625 per scout.

The Opt-Out is $200 per scout. NOTE: If you sell popcorn, but do not meet the sales goal, the opt-out will be reduced on a sliding scale based on how much popcorn was sold.
