About the Events

Women of Distinction Awards Event

Girl Scouts of North East Ohio established the Women of Distinction Awards Event to raise funds to support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) for girls throughout our 18-county footprint, while honoring women who go above and beyond to make our communities better places to live and work. Women of Distinction honorees are selected for their remarkable achievements as business, community, and civic leaders, dedicated to supporting opportunities for women and girls.

In present day, the Women of Distinction Awards Event also annually recognizes an organization with the Advancing Women Award for showing a strong commitment to advancing women in the workplace. Additionally, three Girl Scouts are awarded the Leaders of Tomorrow scholarship for exemplifying the core values and mission of Girl Scouts and for making significant differences in their communities.

Dessert First Gala

Every other year, dessert-lovers join us to celebrate the Girl Scout mission and sample decadent Girl Scout Cookie-inspired treats, handcrafted by prominent Northeast Ohio chefs. The desserts are judged on presentation, creativity, and taste. Following the competition is a formal seated dinner and program, including chef awards and live and silent auctions.

Proceeds from the Dessert First Gala benefit over 17,000 Girl Scouts and adult volunteers throughout our council’s 18-county footprint.
