    May 9, 2012 - KIRO 7's Julie Francavilla supported the Girl Scouts of Western Washington’s Pierce County Women of Distinction Luncheon at Hotel Murano in Tacoma.

    As Girl Scouts currently celebrates their 100th anniversary nationwide, the Western Washington chapter also celebrated three inspiring women who have used their Girl Scout experiences toward creating successful life accomplishments. The women honored included: Mary Armstrong, retired vice president of Environment, Health and Safety for the Boeing Company; Lori Augino, chief deputy auditor for Pierce County; and Haley Dee Iselin, marketing and administrative manager for Metal Roof Specialties.

    With the support of more than 350 guests alongside Francavilla and nearly $47,000 raised, the event helped fund an organization that truly cares about the future of girls today.

    "I leave so inspired when I hear the stories of how local girl scouts in Pierce County are having their lives changed for the better by this organization!” said Francavilla. “These girls and young women are learning that they truly can be whatever they want to be with confidence and a lot of hard work. I love that philosophy and I am proud that KIRO 7 reaches out to these future leaders."

    Girl Scouts of Western Washington strives to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts allows girls to discover their own style of leadership by giving them access to life-changing experiences that inspire them to do something big. Girl Scouts of Western Washington is the premier leadership development organization for girls. For more information, please visit www.GirlScoutsWW.org.
