Girl Scouts Reschedule Inaugural Green Is the New Black Gala to June 10, 2022

WORCESTER — Due to concerns over increasing coronavirus cases and in consideration of the health and safety of guests and staff members, Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts (GSCWM) has postponed the inaugural Green Is the New Black gala to a new date of June 10, 2022.

The Green Is the New Black silent auction will go ahead virtually for one week beginning on Sept. 10 and conclude Sept. 17. “We have too many fabulous prizes from so many generous donors to forgo the silent auction, so we’ve moved it online for a week,” said Pattie Hallberg, CEO of GSCWM.

Utilizing the ReadySetAuction platform, participants can view and bid on a plethora of exciting items and packages, all from their home computer or handheld device.

The silent auction features dozens of items, including VIP tickets to the Jonas Brothers with Kelsea Ballerini at Xfinity Theatre, a one-night stay at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, tickets to see James Taylor or Ringo Starr at Tanglewood, MASS MoCA visitor passes, tickets to Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity, tickets to A Christmas Celtic Sojourn, Boston Harbor cruises, spa packages, couples massages, and a year’s supply of Girl Scout Cookies, including a case of the new Adventurefuls Girl Scout Cookie.
