New York, N.Y.—Six Flags, Inc. (NYSE: SIX) announced today that Six Flags Friends, its community outreach division, will partner with Girl Scouts of the USA to launch a new volunteer incentive program that allows people to volunteer at a selected Girl Scout council and in return receive a free ticket to any Six Flags park around the country.
Girl Scouts of the USA has enlisted Angela and Vanessa Simmons, from the hit MTV reality series "Run's House," to encourage people to make a difference in a girl's life by volunteering with the Girl Scouts. The two sisters will host "Girl Scouts Day" on Saturday, April 26, 2008 at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J., where Girl Scouts from across the country will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the stars.
Through the Girl Scout partnership, Six Flags Friends will provide one complimentary ticket to any Six Flags park for anyone who registers and then volunteers six hours of their time with select Girl Scout councils around the country.
