Please join us in support of our 9th annual Dessert Before Dinner premier fundraising gala on Saturday, September 9th, 2017. 100% of the proceeds will continue to lay the foundation for all girls in Southern Nevada to become tomorrow’s future female leaders of our community.

We really are serving dessert before dinner! Local, top-rated female pastry chefs will create unique Girl Scout cookie-inspired desserts for guests to sample and vote for their favorite. The gala also features a cocktail reception, silent auction, plated dinner, and entertainment.
