Special Events

Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida holds special events throughout the year in our six-county jurisdiction to help raise additional funds to support our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character. We hope you’ll be able to join us for our annual Emerald Awards, Thin Mint Sprint, Golf Tournament or other special event throughout the year.
