Girl Scouts of Nassau County - 100th Anniversary Gala

100th Anniversary Gala

As part of our Centennial Celebration, we hosted an Anniversary Gala at The Garden City Hotel on Thursday, March 14, 2019. This Gala commemorated a century of providing programs and activities to help girls throughout Nassau County become the next generation of leaders.

We recognized four individuals for their leadership and commitment to GSNC over the years. The four honorees include Melissa Connolly of Hofstra University, who will receive the Go-getter Award; Gloria Baca of Boulevard Home Care will receive the Innovator Award; Cathy O'Reilly of DHL Express will receive the Risk Taker Award; and Anthony Edelman of Bethpage Federal Credit Union will receive the Leader Award.

Our 100th Anniversary Gala supported GSNC’s Financial Assistance Program which makes the Girl Scout Leadership Experience available to every girl in Nassau County, regardless of her family’s financial limitations.
