Girl Scout Breaks Cookie Sales Record

OKLAHOMA CITY (March 24, 2014) An Oklahoma City girl who says she asks everyone she meets to buy Girl Scout cookies broke the organization's decades-old sales record, by just more than 100 boxes.

Katie Francis of Oklahoma City sold 18,107 boxes in the seven-week sales period that ended Sunday night.

The previous record was set by Elizabeth Brinton, who sold approximately 18,000 in one year in the 1980s.

The sixth-grade student told The Oklahoman newspaper last month that there were only three ingredients needed to rack up large sales, a lot of time, a lot of commitment and asking everyone she met to buy.

Katie sold 12,428 boxes last year.

Her troop receives a share of the proceeds from the fundraiser and intends to donate to breast cancer research.
