We would like to thank all of our sponsors, donors, staff, volunteers, honorees, attendees, and Girl Scouts who made TRIUMPHANT 2019 such an amazing evening.

To continue giving girls the tools to empower themselves, Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada honors six local women role models who exemplify the values of Girl Scouts at our annual fundraiser, TRIUMPHANT: Celebrating Women in Leadership Awards & Fundraising Dinner. 

TRIUMPHANT is a stunning evening of thanks and recognition for the women who are making an impact right here in our community and driving positive change in the focus areas of Girl Scouts.
