Tickets  

          It is hard to imagine living on the westside of Los Angeles between the early 1950's and 1972 without having bought or seen a Scout-O-Rama ticket. Ten's of thousands of boys, their parents and hundreds of thousands of local residents attended Scout-O-Rama during those years. Crescent Bay Area Council raised nearly a million dollars in support of their scouting program through the sale of Scout-O-Rama tickets costing one dollar each.

"I Gave a Buck" Club Cards  

          The Buck Club was established in the mid 1950's as a way of raising a little extra money for worthy projects. In 1961, Buck Club proceeds were used to send  Junior Leaders  (initially called JLT and then Polaris after 1965). Anyone could buy an "I gave a Buck" ticket at Scout-O-Rama for a dollar and become a member of the Buck Club. Once a member, they were entitled to privileges at the Buck Club coffee pot. The cards were often slit at the top so they could be worn over the button on the flap of the Scout shirt. In the later 1960's, a Buck Club patch was also available to wear from the button of the pocket flap..
