Pictured: Cool Women Class of 2016
Each year, Girl Scouts San Diego honors exemplary women whose personal and professional lives make them consummate role models for girls. These Cool Women make the world a better place as they balance work, family, friends and community service.
Proceeds from the annual event help support our Girl Scout Outreach Program in low-income neighborhoods, homeless shelters and the Girls Rehabilitation Facility.
With co-chairs Joye Blount and Julia Brown, we celebrated our Cool Women of 2016 during a luncheon and ceremony at Coasterra.
