)-- Exceptional role models honored by the Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore over the past twenty years gathered January 25th to welcome the organization's latest honorees into their exclusive and distinguished group.
This year, the Girl Scouts will honor three Women of Distinction, several Junior Women of Distinction and a community partner on March 7th at its annual Women of Distinction & Community Partners Gala. Each honoree is a person or organization of remarkable accomplishment whose contributions have bettered the community.
Dr. June Duck, CentraState Healthcare System; Mary Ann Larkin, Stillwell-Hansen, Inc.; and Kathleen Mead, Investors Bank are the Girl Scouts' 2014 Women of Distinction.
Michele Coyotl, Joyce Falotico, Morgan Fuerbacher, Jacqueline Hennessy, Adriana Poznanski and Francesa Poznanski from Girl Scout Troop 1701 are this year's Junior Women of Distinction. To earn their Bronze Award they created a public service announcement encouraging women to make a pinky promise to get a mammogram. The Bronze Award is the highest award that can be earned by Girl Scout Juniors.
This year’s community partner is Holiday Express and Tim McLoone. McLoone created Holiday Express, an all-volunteer charitable group of musicians that creates free holiday events for over 50 organizations who are in need of good cheer.
Sponsorship opportunities and tickets are still available for the gala. The black tie optional event will take place Friday, March 7th at Eagle Oaks Country Club, Farmingdale. For ticket and sponsorship information, visit www.girlscoutsjs.org/gala or call (732) 349-4499, ext. 223.
