"Last year, we collected 216 Pies and $560," said Richard Walzer, Assistant Cubmaster of Pack 555. "We're hoping to meet or beat that total this year. Mr. Steve Duran, of Shaw's, has been a great supporter of this event for many many years and we would not be successful in our efforts without his support and the support of the staff - and bakers - of Shaw's."
