While stocking up on an annual supply of “Thin Mints” is definitely a delicious way to support the Girl Scouts of Northern California (GSNorcal)—the fourth-largest council in the country—did you know the group is hosting its annual fundraiser, “Celebrating G.I.R.L.s,” at the Bently Reserve Banking Hall this month?

On September 19, join keynote speaker and Girls Scouts of the USA CEO Sylvia Acevedo in celebration of the spirit of the G.I.R.L.—a Go Getter, Innovator, Risk Taker, and Leader. In addition to her executive role, Acevedo is a rocket scientist, engineer, and entrepreneur who has been recognized by Forbes as one of “America’s Top 50 Women in Tech” and one of Fast Company’s “100 Most Creative People in Business.”

In addition to honoring alums (like Amy Weaver, who is President, Legal & Corporate Affairs, General Counsel and Secretary at Salesforce) and being treated to hands-on Maker demonstrations, the evening’s itinerary includes the introduction of the Hub at Bothin, GSNorcal’s most used property for activities and camping. The new facility in Marin will offer year-round, people-centered programming in an effort to deepen GSNorcal’s impact and reach.
