Girl Scouts of Connecticut’s 2013 Breakfast Badge to honor Teresa C. Younger
November 15, 2013
Girl Scouts of Connecticut will host the 2013 Breakfast Badge on Friday, December 6, from 7:30 – 9:00 a.m. at The Hartford Club in downtown Hartford. The organization is honoring the work and achievements of Teresa C. Younger, Executive Director of the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women and past GSOFCT Board President.
Friends and supporters are invited to join this ceremonial Girl Scout breakfast that supports Girl Scouting’s personal and leadership development programs for young women. This event features a silent auction and the presentation of a specially created badge to acknowledge Younger’s dedication and commitment to improving the lives of women and girls across the state.
Tickets are $98 and can be purchased online on the Breakfast Badge webpage. Special pricing is available for GSOFCT members. 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.
Younger has been the Executive Director of the PCSW, which has been the state’s leading force for women’s equality for 40 years. Prior to joining the PCSW, Younger was the Director of Affiliate Organizational Development at the American Civil Liberties Union National Office, where she assisted affiliates throughout the country with organization and management issues. She recently concluded her role as two-term president of the board of Girl Scouts of Connecticut, which serves nearly 44,000 Connecticut girls and 18,000 adult members. Most recently, she was recognized by Liberty Bank with the 2013 Willard M. McRae Community Diversity Award for her lifelong commitment to the struggle for equal rights.
“We’re looking forward to an inspiring morning alongside Girl Scout friends and supporters,” said Mary Barneby, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut. “Teresa truly exemplifies what it means to be a woman of courage, confidence, and character. We are honored to recognize her commitment to changing the lives of women and girls in Connecticut.”
The Breakfast Badge is generously supported by Hartford Hospital, Northeast Utilities, Siebert Brandford Shank & Co., LLC, PCSW, and ConnectiCare. Net proceeds from the breakfast 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.
Past honorees of the Breakfast Badge include former State Senator Edith Prague, University of Hartford basketball coach Jennifer Rizzotti, and Dr. Elsa Nunez, President of Eastern Connecticut State University.
