The Sugar & Stilettos Charitable Foundation raises awareness and funds for the Westside Food Bank to help end the issues of hunger and food insecurity in Los Angeles. Through a bi-annual bake sale, which brings together the best bakeries, restaurants and shopping in town, Sugar & Stilettos has raised over $300,000.00 since its first event in 2011. This translates into over one million meals! The highlight each year is the crowning of “Mr. Sugar & Stilettos,” where a well-known personality dons a pair of stilettos, a tiara and a sash for a good cause. The family-friendly event is full of fun, laughs and plenty of sweet treats!
This year, the event will be The Murray Neidorf Memorial BBQ, in honor of Founder/President Nanci Christopher’s father. It will have a UCLA theme with appearances from the school’s NCAA Championship gymnasts, spirit squad, band members and possibly Joe and Josie Bruin! An athletic video highlight reel on a big screen will feature memorable moments on the field, while a silent auction – with items including season tickets for both UCLA football and basketball for the 2018-2019 season and autographed balls from Coach Kelly (football) and the men’s basketball team – will help raise money for the Westside Food Bank, among many other items. Sugar & Stilettos’ signature baked goods from LA’s top bakeries and the annual autographed stilettos, as well as donated items from restaurant gift cards to luxurious hotel stays and diamond necklaces, will also be sold or raffled for a good cause. The BBQ is family friendly and children are most welcome!
