Troop 505’s Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser Sep 13

Scouting is Outinga message from Troop 505 TLC member, Lisa Vook

We need as many scouts as possible to volunteer that morning and EVERYONE to sell tickets for the breakfast.  Now is the time to get active and drum up business.  You will be getting emails every couple of days to update you on our progress.  We will give a count to Applebee’s of how many tickets we have sold by Wed Sept 10th.

Last year we had a great time and we want to have even more customers.  The way the fundraiser works is we have customers come in with prepaid tickets or buy tickets at the door and we give Applebee’s $2 for each customer and they receive 3 pancakes, two sausages and unlimited coffee, tea and soft drinks.  They provide a couple of cooks in the back to make the food and we serve the customers and clean up.  Disposable items are used and we help clean up at 10am so they can open for their customers.

The $7 ticket will be divided up $2 for Applebee’s, $2 for troop(small tip for staff in back out of these funds), $2 to person who sold ticket or customers who you invited and say they are supporting you., $1 for workers plus tips collected are also divided between workers(scouts who are serving)  For people who don’t come to the meal but purchase tickets $4 for the troop, $2 for ticket seller and $1 for workers.  People who come that day and are supporting scouting in general will have $3 be divided between the workers.  Hopefully this will be a great fundraiser for our troop- we had the goal of raising $1000 for the troop this year.  Also it emphasizes that we need to sell tickets and have the place hopping with customers to have the most successful morning.  We will make signs at the next troop meetings to advertise ahead of time.

Link to make your tickets and fliers!  It worked for me- I’ll check this message to see if it works for you.  Keep track of the tickets you sell and turn in $.  Put your name on the ticket so we can give you credit- and super bragging rights for the scout who has the most customers come to visit them!

Email me with who can come help serve on Saturday September 13th from 7-10am.

Troop 505 Applebee’s Flapjack Fundraiser Sep 14

Scouting is Outinga message from the Flapjack Committee

On Saturday morning, September 14, Troop 505 will be holding a Flapjack Fundraiser at the Applebee’s in Durham. The restaurant will make the breakfast, but the scouts will seat, serve, and clean up after our guests. The scouts will sell tickets ahead of time for this event.

Every ticket sold generates approximately $5 into our scout accounts!

We will need all available scouts to make this fundraiser a success. If we have 15 scouts sell 10 tickets each, we will also need 13 scouts to work that morning (7-11am). Anyone who sells tickets or works that day, gets an even cut of the money in their account.

We realize there will be sports going on that day, or you might go to the Camp Boddie merit badge trip. This means if you want some of the money, you need to sell tickets! And if you hate selling tickets, you need to be working at the event! If you do neither, you get no money. If you don’t need any money, please consider helping anyway, and tell us privately to use the money for someone else.

Think about it. We’ll talk at the next troop meeting.
