First that I have heard of a Boy Scout Council directly applying for a liquor license for a fundraiser.I was more surprised by the statement that 100 per cent of the proceeds will go to the Grand Canyon Council. Better percentage than popcorn!
"On Monday, Oct. 3, The Mesa City Council (AZ) will consider a new liquor license for the Grand Canyon Council Boy Scouts of America for an 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 3, charitable event at 2100 W. Rio Salado Parkway.
Beer and wine will be served. The charity event is held in conjunction with the Taste of Arizona Festival. Food will be available for purchase at participating event vendors. A minimum of three off-duty officers and three private security personnel will provide roaming security and liquor control within a fenced event area. Identification will be checked by security personnel at the event entrance and wristbands will be issued to identify those patrons of legal drinking age. A total of 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Grand Canyon Council, Boy Scouts of America.
The (city) council is slated to make a recommendation to the Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control."
