Being that both Chef's are both border kids, born in San Diego and growing up with one foot in Tijuana and one in the States, it was important that they gave back to the South Bay community for this event.
A percentage of the ticket price is going straight to South Bay Community Services program, La Escuelita Therapeutic Preschool.
South Bay Community Services’ (SBCS) Mi Escuelita Therapeutic Preschool is the only one of its kind in Southern California, designed especially for children affected by domestic violence and abuse to help break the cycle of violence, help children heal and begin the right path for school. Nearly half of the children are in foster care.
Mi Escuelita helps children ready for kindergarten for seamless integration into elementary school. Mi Escuelita graduates, who were previously two years behind academically, actually prove to outperform their peers at the elementary school level.
Mi Escuelita is a free, year-round, full-day preschool for students referred by Child Welfare Services, health centers, law enforcement or community-based programs. The preschool’s holistic approach supports both child and caregivers to help with behavior challenges and learning opportunities in and away from the classroom.
