ABOUT THE 2015 GIRL SCOUT GALA
Our 2015 Girl Scout Gala will honor leaders of premier organizations, visionaries, engaged in strengthening and building our city through their philanthropic and corporate leadership, who embody innovation, and who serve as role models for the leaders we are preparing our girl members to be in the future.
Ever since our first troop gathered in Harlem in 1913, the impact Girl Scouting has had in New York City has been remarkable: from starting a troop for girls with disabilities in 1917; to standing at the polls as women voted for the first time; to having our own President Emerita, Mary Phipps, successfully advocate for the creation of Girl Scout Daisies (for girls as young as five); to partnering with Barnard College to the launch of the Girl Scout Leadership Institute. No organization of its kind has reached more girls and changed more lives for the better than we have.
Girl Scouting reaches 29,034 girls in New York City – two-thirds of whom are from low-income homes. We believe every girl in every borough should have the opportunity to be a leader in her community and society. Proceeds from the Gala will help us meet the rising demand for our programs and prepare today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.
