Girl Scouts pair cookies with beer in new fundraiser
The local Girl Scouts council hopes adults who love their annual treats will also be willing to pair their cookies with something a little stronger.
The Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways Council hosts something they call “Cookies Untapped”. This is their very first cookie and beer tasting fundraiser.
Binghamton residents will need to arrange transportation, however, as the event takes place in October in Syracuse.
Tickets are $65 per person.
The tasting will take place on October 7 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Collegian Hotel and Suites on East Genesee Street in Syracuse.
Persons must be 21 years of age or older and proof of identity is required to participate in the event.
Reservations are being accepted through October 6 at gsnypenn.org/cookiesuntapped.
Organizers say guests can sample all ten varieties of cookies available through the NYPENN Pathways Council, including the all-new Raspberry Rally cookie before it can even be ordered next January.
Each Girl Scout cookie will come with a New York State craft beer selected by a New York craft beer brewer.
The doors open and a silent auction begins at 5:30 p.m. Casting begins at 6 p.m.
In addition to tasting tickets, the price of admission includes a tote bag, collectible glass, light fare, and live music. There will also be a cash bar if anyone fancy something other than beer with their cookies.
The hotel also offers rooms at a reduced rate for guests who do not wish to travel. Reservations can be made by calling 315-701-4312 and quoting the code “Girl Scouts Untapped”.
