Join us for the 13th Annual Samoa Soiree. Details coming soon!

We'll have to wait for the Samoa Soiree

Due to the effects of COVID-19 on the restaurant and hospitality industry, GSCCC will not be holding the annual 2022 Samoa Soiree. This annual event, where top chefs competed using Girl Scout Cookies and their desserts and savories, has been a successful event since first debuting in 2009. We express our heartfelt thanks to those who have supported this annual event over the years – including our media partners and chefs.

We also want to thank all the volunteers and friends who have saved the date and attend each year. Our dedicated volunteers have helped us deliver the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to thousands of girls in our region and ensured that every girl who wanted to be a Girl Scout had this opportunity. We look forward to welcoming back our talented chefs, media partners, generous friends and hardworking volunteers to Samoa Soiree in the future.

While you are not able to support GSCCC with a Samoa Soiree ticket purchase, we hope you will consider making a donation - perhaps the price of a ticket - to ensure that girls continue to have the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. 

Make your gift today!
