2020 Virtual Good Character Gala Virtual Event
I hope this letter finds you and your families in good health. This year has undoubtedly been a challenge for us all. Our letter today is to invite you and your Scouting friends to our Greater Los Angeles Area Council’s 2020 Good Character Gala on November 18th.

This is the first time our annual gala fundraiser has been canceled due to current events, but as true Scouters, we have turned this event into our best event ever by going virtual. Virtual means no driving downtown, no valet parking lines, no dusting off the old tux or worrying about what to wear. On November 18 at 6:30 p.m., watch the show from your sofa online as our special guest.

Our gala will highlight many of the great things GLAAC is doing for our youth and will offer a few surprises too. Click here on November 18th at 6:30 p.m. and share a wonderful evening of Scouting as our guest.
