Girl Scout Night with the Colorado Avalanche

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.

To purchase tickets, go to http://avalanche.teamkse.com/girlscouts18/.

Pajama Jam with the Denver Nuggets

Join us for Pajama Jam with the Denver Nuggets on Friday, Feb. 23, 2018! Cheer on the Nuggets as they take on the San Antonio Spurs and then stay for post-game activities and a sleepover at Pepsi Center. All Girl Scouts, friends, and family are invited.

Tickets are $25/person and include a ticket to the Nuggets vs. San Antonio Spurs game and a sleepover after the game at the Pepsi Center for Girl Scouts troops and families. Sleepover participants also will enjoy a midnight snack, shooting hoops on the court, a movie on Pepsi Vision, and breakfast. Participating Girl Scouts will get a special event patch. Participants not able to stay over at the sleepover are welcome to come and enjoy the game.

Troops can be a part of a ticket referral contest to win a cookie booth and fan experiences. The top three troops with the most ticket referrals will choose from one of two cookie booths onsite at the Pepsi Center after the game or a High-Five Fan Tunnel experience.

Want to join in the contest? Just share your five-digit troop number with others, and have them reference your troop number during when purchasing tickets. You will purchase your tickets first and then the Nuggets’ event staff will email you closer to the game to verify your troop referral number. The ticket referral contest deadline is February 16. Tickets can be purchased after this date, but will not count for the contest.

Purchase tickets at www.nuggetstix.com/GSPJ18. Seats are in the upper bowl area of the Pepsi Center. Tickets are available in other sections upon request by contacting Lexie Urratio at 303-405-1139 or lexie.urratio@TeamKSE.com. Please feel free to contact Lexie with any event questions you may have. We hope to see you there!

Cadettes work to complete the “aMAZE” Journey

Submitted by Girl Scout Cadette Troop 59

Metro Denver

Lone Tree

Troop 59 learned a lot from the “aMAZE” Journey.  We learned a lot about friendship, anti-bullying, self-confidence, cliques, stereotypes, and overall social well-being.  Over the winter, we took the “aMAZE” Journey a step further.  Some of the girls in Troop 59 wrote on sidewalks or left notes around school, to encourage people to be kind and happy.  Other girls gave flowers to students to put a smile on their face or passed out blue bows to wear in support of local law enforcement. The project made a positive impact across our community.  We did this to educate ourselves on friendship, make a difference, and prepare for the future.

To conclude, we learned a lot and helped our community in a fun way.  It was an interesting experience.
