Girl Scouts Present March 1 Fundraising Event At The Tennessee Aquarium Cookie Creations

Thursday, January 31, 2019

The Girl Scouts of the Southern Appalachians will host Cookie Creations on Friday, March 1 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. 

"Attendees will dine on the chef’s unique sweet and savory creations incorporating Girl Scout Cookies; enjoy Tennessee Craft beer; and hear keynote speaker Nicole Hughes, a Girl Scout alum and volunteer who is currently partnering with the American Academy of Pediatrics to create a water safety patch. Nicole will share her story of how Girl Scouts gave her the courage to believe she could effect change," officials said.  "Most importantly, the proceeds from this event will be used to support Girl Scouts and to provide life-changing experiences to girls in our community. Girl Scouts learn and gain skills by participating in troop activities, badge work and the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

"While we might be famous for our cookies, proceeds from the cookies aren’t enough to completely fund the girls’ activities. Cookies only cover $300 of the $500 needed to provide one girl’s yearly Girl Scout experience. The rest comes from the philanthropic giving by generous community members. 

"For the price of a ticket, you’ll have an amazing evening and contribute to a worthy cause. An investment in a girl is the best investment we can all make."

Single tickets are $75, which includes admission and all food and drink. To purchase your ticket, visit www.girlscoutcsa.org/CookieCreations, email philanthropy@girlscoutcsa.org, or call 1-800-474-1912.
