Update on Desserts First - Peoria

At Girl Scouts, there is nothing we take more seriously than the safety and wellbeing of our girls, donors, volunteers, and council staff. With CDC, State of Illinois and GSUSA recommended guidelines amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, GSCI has determined to cancel Desserts First 2020. We are saddened by the decision, but It is impossible to gather our chefs, judges, donors, volunteers and staff together to celebrate Girl Scouts at an event in these trying times. We hope that for those of you that purchased tickets to the event – you will consider your purchase a donation to Girl Scouts, even though we cannot have the in-person event this year. We truly love your support to build girls of courage, confidence and character. If you have questions or would like a refund, please contact Mary Anderson at

Desserts First 2021 will be even greater with all the fun and excitement you have been use to – we hope to see you then!
