Bake-off

Bake off Benefit

You are the main ingredient in our recipe to giving low-income, and at-risk girls, in our communities the opportunity to be Girl Scouts. Local area chefs will put their culinary talents to the test—as they use Girl Scout Cookies to create never-before-seen (or eaten) desserts—for you to sample. Your small bites will make a big impact.

By sponsoring, and attending, you will ensure our Outreach Program helps all our girls become Girl Scouts. The Outreach Program provides a safe place, and various resources, to girls in underserved communities. Together, we can bring the benefits of Girl Scouting to all girls.

When you attend a Girl Scout Cookie Bake-off Benefit, YOU are joining Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan in helping girls build courage, confidence, and character!
