City of Burbank’s storied Boy Scouts of America Troop 201, a wellspring of community service, strong moral, ethical, and spiritual values, and high adventure to more than 1,000 boys in its half-century of existence, is proud to announce its family-friendly, all-ages fundraiser, 2 Milk Minimum Comedy Concert, at Flappers Comedy Club in Downtown Burbank.

The event is open to the public, and is a family-friendly, all-ages event. Tickets are available at the door, or via online presale at
. The evening will be hosted by multi-talented Michael Rayner.
This special fundraising event will support Troop 201’s ambitious goals of providing troop adventures and comradery through the purchase of much-needed scouting equipment and the resources to provide summer camp scholarships to scouts who would otherwise be unable to experience the rich and deeply formative experience. This year’s summer camp will be held at Camp Whitsett, and is an opportunity for the troop to connect with Boy Scouts from across the nation, building relationships, earning merit badges, and practicing the Scout’s Law: A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
Troop 201 is the oldest Burbank troop in California’s Iron Eyes Cody District, with 32 active Boy Scouts at present. In 2013,at least three troop members will ascend to the esteemed Eagle Scout ranking, which requires a community service project of significant breadth, depth, and involvement. Mother’s Day Weekend, Troop 201 will again participate in Relay for Life, a life-changing service event to raise funds and awareness toward the prevention of cancer. The troop’s participation is dedicated to the memory of a troop mother who succumbed to cancer in December 2010.
