Girl Scouts Recognizes Seven OC Trailblazers at
Seventh Annual Celebrate Leadership Event

More than 260 community and business leaders came together on Friday, November 4th to recognize seven outstanding local female leaders, all Girl Scout alumnae and champions of Girl Scouting, and raised over $225,000 (net) for Girl Scouts of Orange County at its Seventh Annual Celebrate Leadership event. Held at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach, each honoree was paired with a current Orange County Girl Scout, providing an opportunity for girls who are just beginning their leadership journeys to interact with women who have achieved excellence in their lives. The 2016 Celebrate Leadership honorees included women who are trailblazers, leading the way for others through their unique vision, remarkable drive and commitment to giving back. Click here to read more about the 2016 honorees and enjoy the post-event recap here.
