Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, famous for its award-winning, hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizzas and calzones, is partnering with Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida by featuring Girl Scout cookie-inspired cheesecakes to celebrate National Girl Scout Cookie Day on Friday, February 7.
Starting February 7, Grimaldi’s will introduce the Thin Mint Cheesecake along with the Samoa Cheesecake made from the delicious Samoa cookie. The Thin Mint Cheesecake will be a chocolate mint cheesecake with pieces of Thin Mint cookie mixed in, a Thin Mint crust and topped with whipped cream. The Samoa Cheesecake will be a caramel cheesecake topped with caramel glaze and toasted coconut, on top of a Samoa cookie crust and finished with a chocolate drizzle and whipped cream. These special cheesecakes will be available for $5 a slice while supplies last at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria, located in Palm Beach Gardens at the Downtown at the Gardens complex, 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410. All proceeds from the sale of the Thin Mint Cheesecake and Samoa Cheesecake will be donated to Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida.
“We are pleased to partner with Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida for National Girl Scout Cookie Day,” said Cory Lattuca, food & beverage director/corporate chef. “With the addition of the Samoa Cheesecake along with the iconic Thin Mint Cheesecake, we invite the community to taste these extraordinary cheesecakes, where every delicious bite benefits girls in Southeast Florida.”
“It’s wonderful to be able to collaborate with a local restaurant like Grimaldi’s Pizzeria,” said Denise Valz, CEO of Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida. “Their support helps showcase our Girl Scout Cookie Sale Program, which is the largest girl-led financial literacy program in the country.” At just $4 a box, the Cookie Sale Program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics. Girl Scout Cookies are on sale through February 16th. To find the cookie booth nearest you, please visit www.gssef.org.
