Cookies & Cocktails 2017

In 2017, as a way of celebrating the incredible centennial of Girl Scouts selling cookies, Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England hosted a very special event of "Cookies & Cocktails". 

On Thursday, January 26th, over 120 guests attended a very special evening celebrating 100 years of Girl Scouts selling cookies! Local chefs created delicious desserts using everyone's favorite treat—Girl Scout Cookies! We were honored to be partnered with some of Rhode Island's best including: Cafe Nuovo, Gracie's, Mill's Tavern, Newport Restaurant Group (Avvio), and The Capital Grille. These groups went above and beyond to showcase our cookies "out of the box".

Attendees enjoyed passed hors d'oeuvres, a complimentary glass of wine, tasty Girl Scout Cookie creations, and had the opportunity to bid on both live and silent auction items. The evening was emceed by the one and only Mario Hilario. It was an incredible evening that will not soon be forgotten!
