Suzanne Bante fundraising for WORLD FOUNDATION FOR GIRL GUIDES AND GIRL SCOUTS INC
Please consider supporting the Friends of Our Chalet through the World Foundation to support projects and programs worldwide for girls!
I have been selected to serve on the World Foundation for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Friends of the Chalet on behalf of our council I am one of the first representing our state in quite awhile. It is an exciting opportunity but I need your kind support.
Our Chalet is on top of the World--- not quite literally, as the Jungfrau in the Bernese Alps rivals for the European title—but Our Chalet, the First World Center for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, has just completed the third phase of its major “Fit for the Future” renovations. With an up-to date expanded kitchen to meet Swiss standards, improved food storage areas, and handicapped accessibility to the dining room, Our Chalet is ready for your visit.
2013 promises to be another exciting year for Our Chalet! In January, Our Chalet was proud to host the officials for the international downhill ski competition in Adelboden, and in March we are so honored to host the annual Helen Storrow Seminar. This seminar brings young women from forty countries to explore aspects of the five leadership modules created by the United Nations. They experience the unique setting of Our Chalet, physically challenge themselves and share their cultures. Spring and summer weeks are booked by various Girl Guide and Girl Scout troops traveling to Switzerland to fulfill their dreams of a lifetime. In the fall, Our Chalet welcomes many adult groups for walking trips and reunion visits.
Your donations to the World Foundation with designated interest in Our Chalet, will provide funds for Our Chalet’s special requests. We thank you in advance for helping us to make the world a better place for all girls!
Yours in scouting,
