Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Scene & Be Seen -

The fifth an­nual “Sports­man’s Grand Jam­boree” is set to re­turn to Palm Beach County March 8 un­der the lead­er­ship of chair­women Erica Bau­man, Aime Dun­stan and Laura Coburn Rus­sell. Ben­e­fit­ing the Boy Scouts of Amer­ica, Gulf Stream Coun­cil and to take place at Ry­bovich Yacht Ma­rina in West Palm Beach, the event will fea­ture coun­try mu­sic, a camp­fire, a silent auc­tion and bev­er­ages for 350 guests.

The mis­sion of the Boy Scouts of Amer­ica is to pre­pare young people to make eth­i­cal choices over their life­times by in­still­ing in them the val­ues of the Scout Oath and Law. Pro­ceeds sup­port the scout­ing youth in seven South­east Florida coun­ties.

Orig­i­nally a kick­off for the Boy Scouts’ “Sport­ing Clays In­vi­ta­tional” at the South Florida Shoot­ing Club, the “Sports­man’s Grand Jam­boree” has evolved into a stand­alone fundraiser for the Boy Scouts’ Gulf Stream Coun­cil, with funds sup­port­ing im­prove­ments at the ag­ing Camp Tanah Keeta in Tequesta.

“Hav­ing man­aged events for this or­ga­ni­za­tion in the past four years, I’ve seen first­hand how 9,000 lo­cal Scouts ben­e­fit from the ef­forts of gen­uine, hard­work­ing sup­port­ers,” said Dun­stan. “It was an honor for me to take on a new role as chair­man along with sport­ing en­thu­si­asts Erica Bau­man and Laura Coburn Rus­sell, whose phil­an­thropic ef­forts have al­ready greatly im­pacted our com­mu­nity.”

By­ron Rus­sell, Mark Simp­son and Ron­ald Holden will serve as hon­orary chair­men. Com­mit­tee mem­bers in­clude Kenneth Beall, R. Bryan Ch­ester, Brit­ton Core, Joseph Cole, Jonathan Di­a­mond, Doug Dinzik, Robert Dunkin II, Christo­pher Dun­stan, Steve Eshel­man, Andy Flack, Cathy and Dale Hedrick, Robert P. Leidy Jr., Erik Lem­bcke, Ben­jamin Macfar­land III, James and Heidi Mackey, Emily Ma­teer, Zach McEl­roy, Dack Pa­tri­arca, Bill Paty, Michael Pip­kens, Bill Prat­ley and Doug Vine.
