Leaders were feted in style by the Bucs, starting with a VIP Tour of the Buccaneers state-of-the-art headquarters and ending with a sweet treat – milk and Girl Scout Cookies served in the Bucs Dining Room.
-- Local Girl Scouts will soon be able to earn a new "Girl in the Game" patch
"The Bucs are committed to providing the Girl Scouts with opportunities and resources to help build girls of courage, confidence and character through working closely with troops and their leaders," said Eileen Sweeney, Director of Community Relations for the Buccaneers. "Hosting them at One Buc Place was a chance for us to say thank you for all they do for the girls of our community."
To increase awareness of the partnership, the Bucs will recognize Girl Scouts at their annual Play 60 Game on Dec. 8 by having Girl Scouts serve as Honorary Coin Toss Captains. In addition, hundreds of Girl Scouts and their Troop Leaders will participate in a halftime ceremony on the field, during which Girl Scouts who pledged to Play 60 minutes a day will be awarded a special commemorative patch. Finally, as a very special treat for Bucs fans, four lucky troops will be selling Girl Scout cookies at stadium exits after the game.
The Bucs are doing their part to help the Girl Scouts with their mission "To Get Her There."
