Samoa Soiree

February 20, 2020 6-9 p.m.

Westin Virginia Beach Town Center

2020 Samoa Soiree

This popular event is for adults 21 years of age and up. It challenges top chefs in our area to compete for best dessert or savory dish made with Girl Scout Cookies as a key ingredient. These are truly one-of-a-kind recipes used to create tantalizing dishes that guests get to enjoy!

This year's theme is Mardis Gras, featuring the Hot Gumbo Brass Brand for live music and the return of several competitors from last year!  Cyprus Grille's Chef Kyle Fowlkes (who won Best Savory, Best Dessert, Best in Show, People’s Choice for Best Savory and People’s Choice for Best Dessert) will also be returning to compete! Who will claim the titles this year?

Tickets are currently starting at $35 for a Safe Samoa experience (non-alcoholic beverages) and $45 for general admission Samoa Soiree guests! Prices will increase after January 31st! Each purchase supports Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast and helps us deliver the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls who might not have it otherwise.
