Girl Scout Cookies booth at Pepsi Center

Troop 76134 from Erie hosted a Girl Scout Cookies booth at Pepsi Center! The troop was one of the winners of the ticket referral contest for Girl Scout Night with the Avalanche. The girls and their families had a great time at the game. In particular, many of the dads enjoyed watching the girls run their booth because they don’t usually get to see their daughters earning and learning the 5 Skills.

The troop sold more than 500 packages of cookies—and is still counting the Hometown Hero donations. One of the leaders told GSCO, “People were giving $20 bills for one package and said to keep the rest! Our troop’s Hometown Hero is the Weld County Sheriff’s Office this year, so they will be loaded up!”

 

Girl Scout Night with the Colorado Avalanche

Update as of Feb. 15, 2018: The Avalanche Marketing Team has extended the deadline for the ticket referral contest to Feb. 20. Troops still have a great opportunity to win the cookie booth at our event on March 2.

Join us for Girl Scout Night with the Colorado Avalanche on Friday, March 2, 2018! All Girl Scouts, friends, and family are invited. Cheer on the Avalanche as they take on the Minnesota Wild. The game starts at 7 p.m. and will be played at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

We have some fun new opportunities at this year’s event. Girl Scout troops can win a cookie booth at the Pepsi Center to sell cookies before the game. Troops can compete in a ticket referral contest where they share their five-digit troop number with friends and family who can share the troop number when purchasing tickets. The troop with the most referrals wins the cookie booth. Deadline for the ticket referral contest is Feb. 16, so share your troop info now for your best chance! Tickets can still be purchased after Feb. 16, but won’t count towards the ticket referral contest.

The first 80 people to purchase tickets will get a special co-branded Girl Scout beanie! The beanies are a limited-edition item that will have both the Avalanche logo and a Girl Scout logo. Once these are gone, ticket purchasers will get a co-branded cap featuring the Avalanche and Girl Scout logos. Please purchase your tickets by February 16 to receive your co-branded item.

There are other ice experiences during the game that ticket holders can win! A random drawing from all ticket holders will be held before the game and winners will be notified in advance.

Tickets are $30/person for group purchase of 10 or more people or $32/person for individual ticket purchases. Tickets are in the upper bowl of the Pepsi Center. Part of the ticket proceeds will be donated back to GSCO.

We had a great Girl Scout Day with the Colorado Avalanche on Jan. 14, 2017! 135 Girl Scouts, friends, and family joined us for a pre-game rally and to cheer on the Avalanche as they took on the Nashville Predators. Girl Scouts traveled from the Pike’s Peak, Northern Colorado, and Denver-metro regions to join in the fun.

Girl Scouts got ready for the cookie sale by making banners, Hometown Heroes cookie box wraps, business cards, and a fun owl SWAP to celebrate the 2017 sale mascot. All participants also received a cool Avalanche, GSCO co-branded hat, complements of the Avalanche.

A BIG THANK YOU to Holly Millet, Laura Tobin, SarahBeth Lundine, and Korina Padilla for all their help at the event! Thanks to their expert help, the event went smoothly and everyone seemed to have fun! Also, a big THANK YOU to the Colorado Avalanche and Pepsi Center staff for hosting a great day for our Girl Scouts, friends, and family!

Enjoy a night of Colorado sporting fun by donating $20 to Girl Scouts Opportunity Grants Fund

There’s a great new incentive to donating to this year’s Family and Friends Giving Campaign, which benefits our Opportunity Grants fund!

If you are one of the first 250 donors who makes a donation of at least $20 starting last Friday, Sept. 6th, through our #STARTARYOT campaign, you will earn yourself two tickets to the preseason Colorado Avalanche hockey game against the Dallas Stars on Sept. 24th at 7 p.m.

What’s great about this year’s campaign is it is a peer to peer fundraising campaign. So you are encouraged to start a fundraising page and ask friends and family to make a donation (they are also eligible for the Avs tickets if they make a donation of $20+).

Last year Girl Scouts of Colorado awarded $145,495 in financial assistance through Opportunity Grants fund. These funds went to help girls go to camp, events, travel and pay for their dues and program materials as finances are never a reason a girl can’t be involved in Girl Scouts. These grants make a big difference! Just hear what some of these Opportunity Grants beneficiaries have gained through Girl Scouts:

“I had a great time at camp this year. I learned how to trot and lope for the first time during Rodeo Camp, which really boosted my self-esteem. I also worked on teamwork with my cabin mates.”

“I was never a Girl Scout because my family couldn’t afford it, and I couldn’t afford to have my daughter involved without a GSCO Opportunity Grant. I have 15 girls from Daisies to Ambassadors in my troop, and we’ve been able to purchase uniforms with our grant. I can’t tell you what a difference in self-esteem a uniform makes for girls. They have been so grateful for their experiences and taken pride in giving back to others with projects like conducting a toiletry drive for a homeless shelter. Girl Scouts has meant so much to my girls, I want to share it with more girls, so I am helping to recruit girls at schools who have never had Girl Scouts. These girls are jumping up and down with excitement and can’t wait to be Girl Scouts!”

“I am a single, stay-at-home mother of seven special needs, adopted children, each with unique qualities I cherish. Some of my children struggle more in life than others. Growing up, I have fond memories of being a Girl Scout, so it was important for me to give my girls the same positive experiences. I have two Cadettes, and they love Girl Scouts! After every meeting, they come home talking my ear off, and they have had more experiences than I could ever give them; and that is what makes me happy. I have a very tight income, and there is never much for extras, so if it was not for the GSCO Opportunity Grant, this would have never been possible for my girls. They have gained self-esteem, pride in themselves and their work, the ability to push themselves and the smiles of success! My daughter is moderately developmentally delayed, and it causes problems for her. At Girl Scouts, she has been able to be herself and be accepted, which is huge for her! Our Girl Scout experience has made me want to be a better person and spend more time with my children, so I have signed up to be the cookie manager for the troop this year. I think it will help all my children understand that even if you think you have a lot on your plate, there’s always room for the most important things, like Girl Scouts!”
