Lubbock, TX—Girl Scouts’ annual Desserts First event will bring seven local chefs together to raise funds and awareness for building the female future leaders of tomorrow on September 10 from 5:30-7:30 PM at the Texas Tech Club-WESTSIDE in Lubbock.

Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains (GS-TOP) invites community members to come enjoy an adult evening of Girl Scout cookie creations prepared by Lubbock’s finest chefs—paired with a selection of wine from McPherson Cellars and served with hors d’oeuvres, plus local live music by Hayley Burton Music, and a silent auction.

Each chef will create a unique dessert incorporating Girl Scout cookies. The lineup of chefs includes: 

  • Alison Alba -Simply Decadent Bakery
  • Bo Hurley - The Texas Tech Club
  • Jennifer McClintock - The Honeycomb Pie Shoppe #2
  • Dewey McMurrey - Texas Tech Hospitality Services
  • Antonio Piña - Hilton Garden Inn
  • Kamie Pursell - Memory 'Lane' Cakes/Heart & Soul Cuisine
  • Tasha Teel - The Cakery

Girl Scouts serves 2,000 girls in the Lubbock community, giving them the tools to lead, break barriers, and create positive change. Proceeds from Desserts First will help GS-TOP offer the transformative experience of Girl Scouting to even more girls in the Lubbock community.

“We know that if you train girls in leadership skills, at an early age, they can change their world and ours,” said Becky Burton, CEO of Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains. “We envision a future where EVERY girl has the opportunity to learn and grow.”

Tickets are $50 each and are available online at
