GSGLA Tournament of Roses Float for the 2012 Parade

The Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles Tournament of Roses Selection Committee for the 100th Anniversary Float, made up of 14 of the most influential women in Los Angeles, met over the course of the last month to determine who would be GSGLA's float builder.

After a 3-month process which included a formal RFP (request for proposal), a 3-page in-depth scoring sheet with 39 criteria, and two weeks of builder presentations, the committee is pleased to have selected Fiesta Parade Floats as the builder for our 100th Anniversary float in the 2012 TOR Parade!

Look for further information over the course of the next year on the progress of the float. We will also post in the coming months information on being part of the float decorating so check the website throughout 2011 for further information.
