Scouting: A Celebration of Youth- Santa Barbara Cruise Registration

Los Padres Council is proud to announce that this year we will be launching our  first annual virtual celebration honoring Terry Bartlett. In light of Santa Barbara County’s restrictions, we have moved our fundraiser virtual! Join us online to support Scouting on the central coast.

Every $40.00 ticket purchased will receive:

  • Login directions to watch the party
  • Wine delivered to your door NOT AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY DAY OF EVENT

Of the over 7,000 young people who participate annually in programs provided by Los Padres Council, some will become your neighbor or employee, some will lead our country, and some will pass on the legacy of Scouting to the next generation; but all will make a positive impact on their communities. You may make your commitment by emailing or registering below!
