The Spirit of Scouting Breakfast is an event which recognizes community leaders that exemplify servant leadership, scouting values and serve as a role model to young people. This event is one of the premier fundraising events in the Ft. Hamilton District, increasing awareness and support in the community. Donations support local programming and outreach services for youth through the Boy Scouts of America Program. We choose our esteemed honoree for his community service past and present, including his leadership roles supporting many youth initiatives throughout our communities.

Proceeds from the event benefit over 1,500 youth in the Scouting program in Butler County. Please join us to congratulate and thank our honoree for his service and commitment to Butler County and Greater Cincinnati.
