New Jersey Scouts Usher In Next Century of Scouting

Nearly 700 guests attended the 100th Anniversary Gala hosted by the Boy Scouts of America’s Patriots’ Path Council on Ellis Island. Attendees included distinguished corporate citizens from New Jersey and around the nation, entertainer Joe Piscopo, Montel Williams, and TLC “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro. All were treated to entertainment, cuisine from the region’s top chefs, a live auction, and a fireworks display to commemorate the milestone. The event raised more than $1 million for scouting.
