Broadway Mall Helps More Than 1500 Girls Experience the Joys of GIRLFEST 2009
What an event! This past month the Girl Scouts of Nassau County were very proud to present GIRLFEST 2009 - “It’s Your Planet – Love It!” More than 1500 girls ages 5 to 17 years old celebrated what being a girl and a Girl Scout was all about on Sunday, October 4th at the Broadway Mall in Hicksville, NY.
We feel that this year’s event was a resounding success and we could not be happier with the turnout. The fact that we were able to reach so many girls in Nassau County and help educate them on how to make a difference and give back to the community all while having a terrific time only makes it that much better.
GIRLFEST attendees had the chance to preview the Fall Products Program and participate in more than 70 tables full of fun and educational activities and workshops focused on healthy living, science and discovery. Girls also learned how to make various arts and crafts while listening to the famous singing voices of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Chorus. This year’s GIRLFEST taught girls to be resourceful and sustainable and to treat our planet earth with the utmost respect. We were also able to kickoff the Girl Scouts of Nassau County Kids-4-Kids Food Collection at the event raising more than 696 pounds of food for Long Island’s hungry.
So to everyone that participated in GIRLFEST 2009 – thank you for joining us! We hope you had as much fun as we did and can’t wait to do it again next year!
P.S. We’d like to thank the Broadway Mall, specifically Trish Ketelsen, Marketing Director who helped make the event such a success.
