Girl Scouts Celebrated Girl Scout Birthday at Sneaker Ball

April 29, 2023, is International Dance Day, and we’d like to celebrate by reliving all the fun we had at our first annual Sneaker Ball! 

Sneaker Ball took place on March 11 at The Center for Visual and Performing Arts in Munster, Indiana. 

It was the perfect way to kick off Girl Scout birthday week, which started on March 12. 

Girl Scouts and their families dressed up to the nines while showing off their favorite sneakers.   

As Girl Scouts entered the venue, they walked the “pink” carpet and took pictures, just like celebrities arriving at an award show.  From there, Girl Scouts participated in different activities, like designing custom sneakers that represented a decade, learned from our council historians through fun interactive activities, and enjoyed shopping at our retail pop up shop. Of course, let’s not forget the fabulous DJ 3Snapz who kept the girls dancing all night long!  The girl’s song requests just kept on coming.

The pink carpet set the stage for our one-of-a-kind Sneaker Ball fashion show. Girl Scouts rocked the runway with confidence, courage, and character as they showed off their fancy outfits paired with their favorite sneakers. 

It was a night full of smiles, laughter, and sweet dance moves. The 2023 Sneaker Ball allowed girls to connect with old friends and meet new ones from around the council ­and was a perfectly fitting way to celebrate 111 years of Girl Scouts.
