HOLLADAY, UTAH – November 15, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) – A local restaurant is offering to help a Holladay Boy Scout troop replace their trailer and camping equipment stolen earlier this month.

Colby Wright, the scoutmaster for troop 384, says Tony Burger, located in Holladay at 4670 South 2300 East, will be donating $1 for every burger sold on Monday, November 16, from 5 p.m. until closing at 9 p.m.

Wright said the burger joint is hoping to help the troop recover the costs of replacing a trailer containing about $8,000 of camping gear that was stolen a couple weeks ago from a church parking lot.

The troop still had its scheduled city camp trip this last weekend after troops in the area offered to help with equipment.

According to Wright, there is some insurance coverage on the trailer, but the troop will have to recover around $4,000.

For anyone wishing to help, a GoFundMe has been set up to help recover the rest of the loss.


  1. Does this sound like a non-profit organization to anyone? Sounds more like a MLM scam to me.

    – Bob Mazzuca, former Chief Scout Executive, BSA, 2012 was paid over $1.2 million plus pension and perks.
    – Wayne Brock was paid over $1.5 million plus pension and perks as he took over in 2013.
    – Roy Williams, the fifth highest-paid non-profit CEO in America at the time, pulled down a whopping $1.6 million.
    – Robert Gates, recently taking the chair in 2014 as BSA’s Chief Scout Executive, pays himself over $2 million annually in compensation, salary, benefits, pensions, insurance premiums, and other miscellaneous perks and benefits.
    – Numerous additional BSA Scout Executives currently pay themselves well over $450,000 annually.
    – Dozens of other BSA Scout Executives (including the Great Salk Lake Council) make over $250,000 annually, not including benefits or pension plans.
