You gotta love those Girl Scouts -- always doing something good and having fun at the same time. This was true back when I was a Girl Scout and now I am watching my own daughter have the same sorts of positive experiences as a Daisy.
Well, the Girl Scouts are at it again. The Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana is partnering with the WNBA's Chicago Sky and Motorola to host a fun family event on Saturday, June 5, 2010 in conjunction with their Forever Green Initiative.
Back in April, the Girl Scouts Forever Green Community Action Project
kicked-off with a series of social media campaigns, public service
announcements and media outreach to encourage the community to take
action to protect the environment. Throughout the initiative, Girl Scout
troops have showcased their own
Forever Green recycling projects through local events across the Chicago
and northwest Indiana area.The Girl Scouts Forever Green Festival with
the Chicago Sky at the Allstate Arena on June 5 will be the culmination
of this effort.
Registration for the Girl Scouts Forever Green Festival is $20 and
includes a registration packet, admittance to the Forever Green Rally
with complimentary food, beverage and music, and one ticket to the
Chicago Sky "Go Green" game. The Chicago Sky has generously agreed to
donate $5 to the Girl Scouts for every Festival registrant. Radio
Disney, a Girl Scouts Forever Green Festival partner, will launch the
Girl Scouts Forever Green Sweepstakes at the Festival, where attendees
will be eligible to win fun prizes. Motorola will provide cell phone
recycling boxes at the festival.
