Every ticket purchased to the Boy Scout Gala on Friday, September 20, 2013 at Riverside Country Club will be entered into a door prize drawing for a classic 1966 Ford Mustang Coupe. Proceeds will benefit your local BSA Council, the Utah National Parks Council.

The 1966 Ford Mustang was the best-selling Mustang of all time. This 8-cylinder car has an automatic transmission, a black interior, a 289 engine, and sounds great!
The 1966 Ford Mustang restoration is being donated by the Utah Auto Body Association under the direction of Cary Robarge owner of Robarge Collision. The Utah Auto Body Association is a group of professionals who represent excellence in all aspects collision repair.
“The values and life-long lessons taught in Scouting help shape our next generation of leaders,” said Robarge. “I am honored to support Scouting by helping restore this classic car.”
