Self confidence, empowerment, and contributions to the community were the themes of the first ever Girl Scout Legacy of Leadership Luncheon on Wednesday, June 5. More than 250 people attended the event, which was held at the Woodway Country Club in Darien, and celebrated the achievements of inspirational women in their careers. The luncheon, which was attended by Darien’s First Selectman Jayme Stevenson, included a silent auction, presentations of some Girl Scout Gold Award projects, and a lunch.
Proceeds go toward the registration fees for underprivileged girls to register as Girl Scouts.
According to Mary Barneby, CEO of Girl Scouts of Connecticut, the luncheon puts a “focus on women who are amazing role models and are leaving a legacy for leadership for girls and women.”
