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

We'll have to wait for the Samoa Soiree

It is with much sadness that we announce Samoa Soiree will not take place as hoped in 2021 due to public safety concerns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. This annual event, where top chefs competed using Girl Scout Cookies in their desserts and savories, has been a hit since first debuting in 2009. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to those who have supported this event over the years, including the chefs and our media partners. More important, we want to thank all the volunteers and friends who have marked their calendars each year and saved the date. Their support has 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 that opportunity. 

Even though we can't enjoy the Samoa Soiree in person this year, you can still ensure that girls don't have to miss out on their Girl Scout experience. Will you donate the price of the tickets you would have purchased to Girl Scouts? Make your gift today!
