Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore will honor 10 successful young women, including Lauren Staub of Asbury Park, at the fifth annual Phenomenal Women Under 40 event on Sept. 23 at the organization’s Program Activity Center in Farmingdale.
Staub, a former Girl Scout, owns The Party Fairy LLC and volunteers for organizations across New Jersey to help combat opioid addiction.
A nonprofit organization committed to nurturing young leaders, Girl Scouts will present its Phenom Award to honorees in recognition of their career and community accomplishments to date, as well as the potential of what they might achieve in their future. All proceeds from the charitable event will help provide a Girl Scout leadership experience for every girl who wants to become one, and support new virtual programs created in response to COVID-19.
“We are proud to shine the light on 10 remarkable women, who reflect Girl Scout’s focus on building women of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place,” said Eileen Higgins, chief executive officer, Girl Scouts of the Jersey Shore. “Their achievements at work and in the community are inspiring and demonstrate to Girl Scouts what it means to be a leader.”
Recipients of the Phenom Award are from Monmouth and Ocean counties and represent a wide range of businesses and nonprofit organizations in central New Jersey. They all share a passion for community service. The nominees were selected from a public nomination process that considered their leadership in the workplace, volunteerism, as well as demonstrated hard work and dedication necessary to be a success.
