digital-invite-girlscouts 4RESIZE FINAL

 

For 27 years, Girl Scouts has selected an outstanding woman and dedicated community leader who emobdies the beliefs and principles of the Girl Scout Movement and has presented her with the Trefoil Award. Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas will honor Suzanne Wade, President, San Antonio Food/Drug Division, H-E-B, in recognition of her lifelong achievements, particularly her contributions to the community on Thursday, September 18, 2014.

Suzanne joined H-E-B in 1997 and assumed her current position in July 2003. Suzanne is a graduate of Oklahoma State University, chair of the Young Women’s Leadership Academy Foundation board, chair of the San Antonio Teach for America Regional Board, board member of the South Texas Blood & Tissue Center and advisor for the United Way Women’s Leadership Council, where she will assume the position of chair in 2015.

"Girl Scouts taught me about courage, confidence and character. I learned to work with a team and gained communication skills that helped me grow into the leadership role I hold today. I learned that I loved to sell and I was good at it. Girl Scouts allowed me to develop into a very goal-oriented woman." says Suzanne about how Girl Scouts prepared her to be the leader she is today.

“Suzanne is a Girl Scout alumna and valuable partner to our council,” said Rose González Pérez, CEO of GSSWT. “Her diverse support has touched so many aspects of our organization and we are thrilled to honor her this year.”

"Girl Scouts is even more important today since young women have so many opportunities in front of them. Being active in Girl Scouts will give a young woman leadership experience that will be invaluable in her education, her career and lifelong happiness." states Suzanne.

H-E-B has been a Trefoil-level sponsor for four years, investing more than $120,000 to teach girls the skills they need to keep their bodies healthy, minds engaged and spirits alive through H-E-B’s Healthy Living Initiative.

Trefoil 2014 is co-chaired by Gloria and Fully Clingman; Jimmie Ruth and Dick Evans; Barbara and Mike Gentry; Suzanne and Jim Goudge; Charline and Red McCombs; Carri and Tullos Wells; and Lynn and Thad Ziegler with support from Honorary Chair Charles Butt.

The Big Give S.A.

Written by

BigGive trefoildots date WEB

On Tuesday, May 6, GSSWT will participate in The Big Give S.A. -- a 24-hour day of online giving that will take place from midnight to midnight. More than 350 Bexar County nonprofits have signed up to participate.

The purpose of this community-wide giving challenge is to increase public awareness of the impact local nonprofits make in addressing our community’s social challenges, bring nonprofits and donors together, expand the idea of online giving, connect people to the causes that move them the most and, of course, make giving FUN. By turning giving into a shared city-wide experience, we can significantly impact the future of San Antonio and collectively move our city forward.

We know that when girls succeed, so does society. Did you know that only 7.5% of charitable dollars are given to girl programs? Research shows that investing in girls shows significant returns on our community. Support our girls on Tuesday, May 6 by making a contribution that will make a difference.

BB Logo tag V2noSM RGB webJoin us! Visit the Girl Scout block party from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6 in support of The Big Give S.A., hosted by Broadway Bank at the corner of Tesoro Dr. and Cheever Blvd. (off NE Loop 410/Nacogdoches, behind Luby’s). The Mobile Leadership Center will be our online giving center and we’ll be joined by Cheesy Jane’s and KHill BBQ food trucks (both donating 15% of their profits from the day).

On the Green ToGetHerThere

Written by

OnTheGreen Header WEB

 

The second annual On the Green ToGetHerThere Golf Tournament will be held Thursday, March 6 at the beautiful Canyon Springs Golf Club. This event offers the community an opportunity to have fun hitting the greens while helping support more than 30,000 members within our 21-county service area.

Girl Scouts of the USA launched the ToGetHerThere cause in 2012, with the goal of reaching gender-balanced leadership in one generation. The campaign is a broad and prolonged effort to break down barriers that hinder girls from leading and succeeding in technology, government, science, business and industry.

Studies reveal that girls idealize leadership qualities and skills, such as being talented, caring, honest, hard-working, confident, good listeners and team players. But only 21 percent of girls believe they have the qualities required to be a good leader, and a whopping 61 percent of girls are either ambivalent about leadership or say it’s not important to them at all. Girls can’t be what they can’t see, and they need to see female mathematicians, entrepreneurs, superintendents, mayors and CEOs before they’ll know that they can be one too.

By participating in the On the Green ToGetHerThere Golf Tournament, you can play an active role in helping thousands of girls reach their goals. Because, when girls succeed, so does society. Please join us by participating through the various opportunities listed in the sponsorship packet.

We hope to see you “on the green.”
