After careful consideration, we have determined it is best that we cancel the Women of Distinction event next Thursday at the Hilton Tampa Downtown. Much like we encourage our girls to take responsibility for their community, we know it’s important to lead with the same attitude.
Even with this being our largest annual fundraiser and an event where we deeply enjoy the opportunity to all gather and celebrate six amazing women, this was ultimately the right decision to make. As urged by the governor yesterday, it would be irresponsible of us to hold a large gathering of people in this uncertain stage.
Girl Scouts of West Central Florida’s Women of Distinction Luncheon honors and celebrates local women, linking leaders of today with future women leaders we are developing through Girl Scouting.
Our honorees are women whose professional accomplishments make them positive role models who inspire girls to achieve their own goals and dreams. They exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and Law through ethical leadership and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of their fellow citizens through community service.
