Special Events

Join Us.

The Laurel Highlands Council hosts a variety of Special Events throughout the year to raise funds and awareness of Scouting in Western Pennsylvania, western Maryland, and portions of West Virginia. From Golf Outings to our annual Eagle Scout Recognition Dinner, these events provide an excellent opportunity for individuals and corporations to show their support of Scouting while enjoying high-end events and second to none networking opportunities.

WHITNEY M. YOUNG JR. AWARD DINNER

The Boy Scouts of America, Laurel Highlands Council offers a unique opportunity to improve the lives of young people – and by doing so, make our families strong and neighborhoods a better place to live. Scouting provides fun experiences that develop self-esteem, character, and values. But without the unsung heroes and many others like them – too many young people in disadvantaged areas would never know the joy and promise of becoming a Scout.

The Whitney M. Young Jr. Service Award is national recognition for those individuals and organizations who provide exceptional service for disadvantaged youth by developing Scouting and other opportunities in challenging urban and rural areas.

Your support helps us provide a Scouting program for youth and families that can’t afford to participate. Registration assistance, camping scholarships, transportation, uniforms, handbooks and program specialists are among the expenses this event helps cover. Please help us continue our mission to serve youth from all communities, regardless of circumstances.  Register Now
