LaSalle Street After Hours Event in Chicago

Supporting the Chicago Council of Boy Scouts of America

The LaSalle Street After Hours event is a continuation of a long history of the Chicago financial district supporting the Boys Scouts of America and the Chicago Council.

Joe Guinan, a former Scoutmaster, is chairman of this year's event.  We talked to two of his former scouts, who are now employees of Advantage Futures, about their experiences in Scouting and that that means for them today.
