Girl Scouts of Connecticut to Honor Community Leader Gloria McAdam

November 12, 2010

Girl Scouts of Connecticut will honor an accomplished leader in the fight against hunger, Gloria McAdam, at the 2010 Breakfast Badge event on Friday, December 10 from 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. at The Hartford Club in Downtown Hartford. Friends and supporters are invited to join this ceremonial Girl Scout breakfast of fun and fundraising to acknowledge the inspiring community leadership of Gloria McAdam, while supporting Girl Scouting's personal and leadership development programs for young women. The event is supported by QSP Inc.(A Time Inc. Company), Siebert Branford Shank & Co., LLC, ConnectiCare, Inc. & Affiliates, Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company, Lockton Companies, LLC, and Shipman & Goodwin LLP.

Ms. McAdam has been fighting hunger for more than 25 years. She is President & CEO of Foodshare and works tirelessly to distribute food to people in need. She supports numerous outreach efforts, advocating on behalf of hungry families, and inspiring those around her to gain a greater understanding of both the causes and solutions to hunger.

Girl Scouts of Connecticut is known and respected for helping girls develop uncommon leadership skills that serve the common good. As a former Girl Scout and Troop Leader, Ms. McAdam continues to display Girl Scout values in demonstrating courage, confidence, and character in her efforts to make the world a better place.

"We chose to honor Gloria McAdam with this year's Breakfast Badge Award to recognize her inspiring service to the community and her dedication to the fight against hunger," said Jennifer Smith Turner, CEO Girl Scouts of Connecticut. "Her exemplary leadership and community service make her a great role model for Girl Scouts across Connecticut."

Net proceeds from the Breakfast Badge will support enrichment, educational, recreational, and personal development programs that help girls in grades K - 12 bring out the best in themselves and their communities.  The Girl Scout Leadership Experience offers girls the lifetime skills they need to discover their personal best; connect with others to build healthy relationships; and take action in their communities to make the world a better place.
