WHO WE ARE:
The Sugar & Stilettos Charitable Foundation raises awareness and funds for Los Angeles community food programs to help end the issues of hunger and food insecurity.
As a small grass-roots community organization, The S&S Charitable Foundation has established a close relationship with The Westside Food Bank -- the sole beneficiary of its efforts -- and continues to look forward to making a difference from its own backyard.
What differentiates S&S from other organizations? Is it the tiaras? Sure. Is it the stilettos? Why not? Is it the custom sashes and crowning ceremony? Of course. Or is it the close-knit group of hard-working women who have grown into a family, volunteering their time to put together an experience that leaves their community feeling more supported and full of joy than ever before. Oh that? OOH LA LA!
The Sugar & Stilettos Charitable Foundation is proud to have donated over $300,000 in sweet sponsorships, in-kind donations, and auction/raffle items since it's first Bake Sale Extravaganza for Charity in 2011 representing more than ONE MILLION MEALS provided!
THIS YEAR'S EVENT:
This year, we are celebrating the life of Murray Neidorf. He was a huge part of the S&S Family, as well as a beloved father, grandfather, husband, and UCLA Alumni. At the BBQ there will be a UCLA theme with NCAA championship gymnasts, Spirit Squad/Band Members and possibly Joe and Josie Bruin in attendance plus an athletic video highlights reel on a big screen and an auction for UCLA Football & Basketball 2018-2019 Season with autographed balls from Coach Kelly (football) and the team (basketball). OOH LA LA…Murray would be so happy about this!
WHY THE WESTSIDE FOODBANK?
The need for food assistance is at an all time high. One in six families now need help keeping food on the table which matches the nationwide average. In the U.S. 50 million people are unsure where their next meal is coming from with women, children, and minorities most impacted by food insecurity issues. Annually, The Westside Food Bank distributes 4.5 million pounds of food to over 70 local social service agencies. For more information, please click here to visit their website.
