Fundraiser for local Scout to attend National Jamboree

A percentage of sales at the Roundtable Pizza in La Cañada between 5 and 9 p.m. April 28 will assist Adam de Lucia of Boy Scout Troop # 509 in La Cañada to raise the necessary funds to attend the National Jamboree this summer in Washington, D.C., and Virginia.

De Lucia is a Life Scout who has completed his Eagle project with the TreePeople, planting 28 35-gallon trees in a local park as part of the Million Trees for LA project. Support he receives during the fundraiser will help him travel to National Jamboree, where he can participate in a special Eagle Ceremony for Scouts being awarded their Eagle Rank in this 100th-year celebration.


All dine-in, take-out or delivery on any regular priced items will qualify for the donation. Leave your receipt in the designated box. Roundtable Pizza is located at 501 Foothill Blvd. Call ahead for take-out or delivery (818) 952-1100.

For more information or other ways to help, call (818) 429-2528.

One swing can be worth $1 million

Hathaway-Sycamores board members and golf event co-chairs Brad Freer and Dave Battaglia invite the community to participate in the Hathaway-Sycamores Child and Family Services’ “Shot-at-a-Million” Golf Classic on May 14 at Angeles National Golf Club in Sunland.

Proceeds from this event will help fund therapeutic and other support services to youngsters, ages 6 to 18, who are cared for by Hathaway-Sycamores, the largest provider of children’s mental health services in Los Angeles County.

Golfer or not, there are many ways to participate in this event. Die-hard golf enthusiasts can opt for the Longest Day of Golf, with participants teeing off at 7 a.m. and playing at their own pace until 5:30 p.m. Each golfer contributes or raises $1,500 and receives an invitation for two at the 19th Hole After-Party along with “Shot-at-a-Million” qualifying opportunities.

For golfers who can’t devote the entire day, there’s the 9-Hole Team Challenge from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Here, teams of two compete in a two-person scramble “scratch” format featuring numerous on-course competitions and prizes. Cost is $500 per team and includes two tickets for each golfer to the 19th Hole After-Party and one qualifying “Shot-at-a-Million.”

For those who can’t hit the links at all, there’s the 19th Hole After-Party from 5:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m., emceed by KISS-FM traffic reporter Commander Chuck Street. For $50 per person, guests will enjoy four-star food and drink, entertainment, a silent auction featuring a weekend stay for two at the Montage Laguna Beach resort, including dinner at The Loft restaurant, and a bird’s-eye view of those golfers trying to pocket $1 million for a hole-in-one.

And a brand-new 2010 BMW Mini-Cooper will be raffled away (tickets are $50, and the winner need not be present).

For event information, or to buy tickets, visit or call Andi Sica at (626) 395-7100, ext. 2516.
