The Juliette Low Leadership Society of Muskogee invites you to the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame for “Pearls of Note” - an evening reception of music, hors d’oeuvres, and special drawings with proceeds benefitting area Girl Scouts. Did you know that Muskogee has a special place in history? The first known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts is credited to the Mistletoe Troop in 1917, right here in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Join us where it all started!
Pearls of Note
Tuesday, August 26, 2014
from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
at the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame
401 South 3rd Street, Muskogee
Event tickets are $20.00 per person or $35.00 per couple. Sponsorships include event tickets and recognition at various levels. Girl Scout leaders are able to attend free of charge (registration required) and bring a guest for $10.00. Prize drawing tickets will be available at the event for $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00. Maybe you can swing by the commemorative bronze statue in front of Three Rivers Museum for good luck before the event and then buy as many prize drawing tickets as the number of boxes of Girl Scout Cookies you have eaten!
Why Pearls? Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, was known for many things - one of the most notable being her pearls and how they played a crucial role in her legacy. In 1914, Juliette Gordon Low sold a strand of rare matched pearls to pay the rent on the Girl Scout National Office. She said, “Jewels are not important, but my Girl Scouts are. They need money more than I need pearls.” And to this day, we honor her gift by giving those of our own.
So we invite you to enjoy an evening that celebrates Girl Scouts ... all their courage, confidence, and character ... all their cookies, camping, and creativity ... and especially all their curiosity and community projects as they discover their world and make it a better place. Empower a new generation of girls and leaders by helping us provide the opportunities that fuel their dreams.
About Girl Scouts: What do we do? We discover. We connect. And we take action. We build girls of courage, character and confidence, who make the world a better place. Our programs provide the framework for a wide array of experiences for girls to explore their potential ... from s’mores to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math)!
