Friends of Girl Scouts San Diego are invited to come together under the stars on Friday, Sept. 13, for Urban Campout: All That Glitters is Gold. The event will be held from 6-11 p.m. at Girl Scouts’ campus in Balboa Park, located at 1231 Upas Street.
The auction items include a seven-day Holland America Line cruise to the Caribbean, Mexico, Alaska, or Canada; a trip to the Kentucky Derby; and Southwest Airlines tickets for foreign and domestic travel. Proceeds from the 22nd annual fun fundraiser for adults will support programs focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), leadership, life skills, outdoor adventure, and entrepreneurship.
In addition to a wine walk (modeled after a cake walk) and classic camp activities like archery and s'mores, the event will provide entertainment based on its theme. Urban campers will “pan for gold” and compete for a chance to score a “golden ticket.” The gilded evening will also feature auctions, gourmet cuisine, adult beverages, and dancing to the music of The Mighty Untouchables. Urban Campout attire will run the gamut from TGIF casual to Golden Globes glamorous.
The public is welcome at Urban Campout, For details on attending or volunteering for the event, visit sdgirlscouts.org/uc or call (619) 610-0807.
