The Good Scout Award Luncheon is attended by over 1,200 leaders from major companies in our community who gather to support local Scouting programs in Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky. Each year, the Good Scout Award is presented at this event to a business or individual who has made a lasting impact in our community over the years. Held each year at the Duke Energy Convention Center, this luncheon is one of Greater Cincinnati’s largest annual fundraising events and a great networking opportunity.

Thank You to our 2019 Keynote Speaker and Honorees!


Join in the excitement of hearing from “Sweet Lou”, Lou Piniella, as he talks baseball, leadership, life and the 1990 World Series Champion Cincinnati Reds!

Lou played sixteen seasons in the major leagues, was named AL Rookie of the Year in 1969 and won two World Series championships with the Yankees in 1977 & 1978.

In 1990, Lou took over a Reds team that had lost 87 games the year before and led them to a wire-to-wire run, leading the National League West the whole season before winning the NLCS against the Pirates and the World Series against the heavily favored Athletics. 

Piniella was named manager of the year in 1995, 2001 & 2008. He finished his manager career ranked 17th all-time on the list of managerial wins.
