The Sam Houston Area Council Boy Scouts of America recognizes that the diversity of Southeast Texas makes our community and our Scouting programs strong and special. The values, skills, and leadership learned in Scouting benefits all youth and all communities. The council wants all families of every culture to know that their children are welcome in Scouting.

This community and business leader networking event will celebrate African-American, Asian and Hispanic cultures, and highlight the wonderful and unique food, beverages, dress and customs of these prominent cultures in Southeast Texas.

The Boy Scouts of America serves approximately 50,000 youth in Southeast Texas with programs that build character, prepare youth for careers, teaches outdoor skills, and develops our future leaders. In 2017, Houston has been named the most diverse city in America, and Scouting is reaching out towards both under-served and emerging communities all over our area.

All proceeds will support the development of Scouting programs in Southeast Texas. Come out and taste the global cultures of our area and enjoy entertainment from around the world, all in one place.

Participants will have a great time, and help us ensure that all youth are given a chance to live by the Scout Oath and Scout Law. Tickets are $25.
