November 21 ~ 6-8 p.m.
Dessert First is coming to your kitchen this year!
Since we can't hold our signature fundraiser in the traditional way, we're going digital. With the Dessert First At-Home Edition, you will get a live cooking demonstration by a Tampa Bay Area chef streamed right to your kitchen while you create their one-of-a-kind, Girl Scout Cookie-flavored dessert in the comfort of your own home.
You just choose a Girl Scout Cookie flavor from one of our
top-selling varieties (Thin Mints®, Samoas®, Tagalongs®, Trefoils®)
and we'll provide a kit that includes:
- A box of the Girl Scout Cookie you choose
- A recipe card with full ingredients and directions
- An event program detailing the night's activities
- Entry into prize drawings during the event
We know picking just one will be hard, so after the event, you will receive all four recipes. That way, when you order your Girl Scout Cookies in January, you can try them all. Register quickly - space in each Cookie's session is limited and cookie flavors are chosen on first-come, first-served basis.
Act fast! You must register by Nov. 5 for your cookies to be shipped to you. This ensures you have enough time to receive your dessert kit and purchase all necessary ingredients. Anyone who registers after Nov. 5 will need to pick up their cookies at the Tampa Leadership Center.
And the best part (well, other than making and eating your delicious dessert), is that you are supporting Girl Scout opportunities for thousands of girls. The funds we raise during this event from our participants and sponsors will provide critical funding for things like membership, camp experiences, essential supplies, programs and so much more.
We will also have drawings during the evening with some fabulous prizes. No purchase necessary to win.
If you are unable to join us for this event, please
consider supporting Girl Scout opportunities for thousands of girls by
making a donation. Your donation helps provide
critical funding for things like memberships, camp experiences,
essential supplies, programs and so much more.
You can have an even bigger impact by sharing our Facebook event with your family and friends.
