BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) - The Girl Scouts of Western New York honored nine local women for their contributions to the community and for mentoring girls.

The event last Thursday at Salvatore's Italian Gardens was completely run by the girls, who interviewed each honoree and prepared a speech about them to present.

The event helps to build a lot of important skills in the girls, and recognizes the women who have given their time to help girl scouts prepare to be the next generation of leaders.
