31 Bits Launch Party

Just a Bite™ is partnering with 31 Bits for a boutique line launch party this summer. The event will be held Thursday, June 24th from 5:30-8:00pm at the Westerly in Corona Del Mar. Part of the proceeds will be going to 31 Bits and the women who make it possible.

31 Bits started out in 2008 when five college students from Southern California traveled to Uganda and met six amazing women. These women were creating piece of artwork disguised as jewelry, they needed to feed their families and pay for school, medical and shelter. Unfortunately the market was lacking and these intuitive college girls knew they could make a difference. 31 Bits provides a market for the jewelry made in Uganda and is helping to change lives, one necklace at a time.

Just a Bite™ Cake Pops will be displayed at this unique event and is very proud to be a part of such a remarkable and considerate project.

Taste of the Nation:No Kid Hungry

Helping to end children’s hunger is of great importance to Just a Bite™. This past weekend we participated in a fantastic event called Taste of the Nation: No Kid Hungry. It is one of 55 events taking place this summer, throughout the United States, in an effort to end childhood hunger. This star-filled affair took place at Media Park in Culver City on June 6th.

Brilliant LA chefs, mixologists and dessert divas, like our own Mindy Himmel, donate their time and talent to this cause. From Chilean Sea Bass to Thai Shrimp Skewers to Chocolate Cake Pops, every food you could imagine was in attendance. Funds are raised to support local recipients like St. Joseph’s Canter, Los Angeles Coalition to End Hunger and Homelessness , Los Angeles Regional Food Bank and California Food Policy Advocates.

Our Cake Pops were displayed in the exclusive VIP tent and we were thrilled at the response. Just A Bite™ loves to work with parties and weddings, but we definitely have a soft spot for a charity. Remember us when you are putting together an auction basket or are having a charity event of your own.
