Girl Scouts Tagalongs® Peanut Butter Patties and Dairy Queen Blizzards Make a Delicious Combination

Celebrating the second annual DQ® Girl Scout Appreciation Week
Monday, July 20 – Sunday, July 26


Girl Scout Appreciation Week is part of a two-month, licensed promotion with Dairy Queen that includes the introduction of the new Girl Scouts Tagalongs® Peanut Butter Patties Blizzard treat as the July Blizzard of the Month and the return of the Girl Scouts Thin Mint® Cookie Blizzard in August.

DQ® Girl Scout Appreciation Week reflects the Girl Scouts strategy to develop strategic alliances which allow girls to experience entrepreneurial business programs in local communities. During Girl Scout Appreciation Week, troops will have the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial and leadership skills by participating in behind-the-scenes store tours, receiving tips from owner/operators about how to run a successful business, gaining insight into the product development process and enhancing their financial literacy skills while learning how a restaurant makes a profit.

“Girl Scout Appreciation Week is a great way to expose girls to business leaders in their own communities,” says Chief Executive Officer, Marilyn W. Midyette. “Girl Scouting is dedicated to developing courageous and confident girls who will be tomorrow’s leaders. This experience will allow our girls to see first-hand how continued community involvement can not only help them shape their futures, but also help make the world a better place.”

Community events such as these raise awareness for local Girl Scout troops. Troop membership is on the rise, but adult volunteers are needed to lead troops or share their talents through programming possibilities.
