NEWPORT NEWS - Chefs in Hampton Roads will compete to create the best and most original appetizers and desserts in which a Girl Scout cookie is a key ingredient.

The 5th Annual Samoa Soiree is Saturday, February 23, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News.

13News Daybreak anchor Vanessa Coria will be the emcee and will join food writer and critic Patrick Evans-Hylton and David Nicholson, author of The Dish Blog for the Daily Press in judging the creations.

For $50 per person, you'll sample the creations, have adult beverages, take part in a silent auction and listen to music by the Jim Newsom Band.

Proceeds will support the Opportunity Fund for girls at Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, which provides financial assistance to girls whose families need help with membership, summer camp and program feeds. This fund ensures that all girls can participate in Girl Scouting, regardless of social economic status.

Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast, a United Way Agency, serves more than 16,000 girls in grades K through 12 and over 6,000 adult volunteers in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
