Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta’s Second Century Circle Inaugural Breakfast took place on Tuesday, March 19, 2013, at the Piedmont Driving Club Ballroom.
Honorary Co-Chairs were Roz Brewer, President & CEO, Sam's Club, and Bea Perez, Chief Sustainability Officer, The Coca-Cola Company. The 2013 Changing the World Award was presented to Carol Tomé, CFO & EVP - Corporate Services, of The Home Depot. The Changing the World Award is presented annually to a woman who has achieved professional success, made significant impacts in the community, and exemplifies the Girl Scouts' tenets of Courage, Confidence and Character.
The purpose of the Second Century Breakfast was to launch the second century of Girl Scouts in the Greater Atlanta community with exceptional leadership and strong philanthropic support. The event was hosted by Jack Cay, President & Partner of Palmer & Cay and a steering committee of 19 corporate executives and community leaders. With 165 people in attendance, we surpassed our Second Century Circle goal and raised over $300,000 in gifts and pledges for girls.
