In addition to making everyone’s sweet tooth happy, they are also making an effort to be philanthropic, with 100% of all competition and classroom proceeds going to The Epilepsy Foundation and Love Across The Ocean (LATO).

The Epilepsy Foundation’s nationwide mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives. The Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Los Angeles fulfills this mission by leading the fight to END EPILEPSY.

At Love Across the Ocean, children are their first priority. Originally created to build and renovate schools, LATO soon found itself helping families who struggle to feed themselves on a daily basis. Volunteers travel to rural areas of Vietnam to distribute food, medicines, and clothing. In California, LATO helps refugee families of all nationalities start a new life.Love Across The Ocean logo
