Are you a fan of Girl Scout Cookies? Do you want to set a world record? This is your chance! On Saturday, January 6, the Girl Scouts will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for dunking more cookies in milk, and they are calling everybody to come out and help! They are going all out with a fun, family-friendly event at the Allstate Arena that includes a rally, performances, cookie activities, and of course a chance to set the world record. The icing on the cookie (pun intended), will be a chance to cheer on The Chicago Wolves for their home game. Looks like a fun, family event! Because what could be better than hockey and Girl Scout cookies?
Why Girl Scouts Cookies?
Not only are Girl Scout Cookies oh-so-delicious, but when you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you help that little cookie boss do amazing things? The awesome G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in your community who sells these treats gain experience with essential life skills like people skills, goal setting, business ethics — all while building confidence that will hopefully one day change the world for better. Awesome, right?
