DOUGHERTY COUNTY (WALB) - A big crowd supported southwest Georgia Boy Scouts Tuesday night and enjoyed some food many of them don't eat very often.

Despite the rain, 1,200 guests enjoyed the 19th annual Wild Game Dinner at Potter Community Center.

Folks wined and dined and wagered in the silent auction.

The proceeds from this event account for one-sixth of the operating budget for troops throughout the region.

"It helps provide scouts an opportunity to attend our camp, Camp Osborne. It helps us start new scout units and pays for the recruitment drives, the insurance programs and the things we put together behind the scenes to help go to camp so they don't have to pay the full cost.," said Chehaw Council Executive Director Ray Allen.

The Chehaw Council of the Boy Scouts includes Troops in 17 southwest Georgia counties.
