Sponsorship Investment Opportunity: Profile Your Company

Girl Scouts of the Florida Panhandle’s Women of Distinction Awards Gala is an opportunity for your company to be affiliated with a first-class event that recognizes inspiring women leaders and role models in the Florida Panhandle. 

The success of Girl Scouts speaks for itself.  Two-thirds of our nation’s most accomplished women in public service, business, science, education, the arts, and community life were Girl Scouts.  Virtually every female astronaut who has flown in space got her start here.  Mae Jemison, the first African American woman in space, was a Girl Scout.  Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman to sit on the Supreme Court of the United States was also a Girl Scout. Dr. Drew Gilpin Faust, the first female president of Harvard University, and Katie Couric, the first woman to anchor a network evening newscast, both began their careers in Girl Scouts.  In Florida, women leaders who were Girl Scouts include former First Lady Adele Graham, and former Florida House of Representatives member Marjorie Turnbull, to name a few. Today there are 59 million Girl Scout alumni.
