0315- 2017 Celebrate Leadership Honorees with their Girl Scout Partners

On Friday, November 10 more than 280 community and business leaders came together to celebrate six extraordinary female leaders-- all local Girl Scout alumnae and champions of Girl Scouting-- at Girl Scouts of Orange County’s Eighth Annual Celebrate Leadership Event. Held at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, attendees raised over $250,000 (net) to support Girl Scouting in Orange County. Each Celebrate Leadership honoree was paired with a current Girl Scout, ranging from Daisy (kindergarten) to Ambassador (grades 11-12), providing the next generation of female leadership with an opportunity to connect and mentor with women who have achieved excellence in their lives. Read the full event recap here.
