Last Thursday, Sept. 23, community members, leaders in Girl Scouting, and supporters gathered at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago to celebrate and garner excitement for the Girl Scout mission at our annual fall fundraiser, Smart Cookies Badge Bash, hosted by our Associate Board!
Attendees got a first-hand look at what Girl Scouts really do through interactive booths led by staff and alums from our council. These former Girl Scouts taught booth participants about fundamental Girl Scout experiences, from testing their speed at tying a bowline knot to putting their crafting skills to the test by designing a face mask. At a STEM-based booth sponsored by InventorCloud, attendees also got a chance to make their own Newton Disc to learn about color-light interactions.
All of these booths showcased exactly why investing in Girl Scouts matters: we provide Girl Scouts with experiences that help them find their voice, their interests and passions, and make an impact. Girl Scouts empowers young people who can be unapologetically themselves as they discover their strengths and rise to meet new challenges—whether they want to climb to the top of a tree or the top of their class.
Thanks to your support, we raised $67,000 and counting!
