This festive celebration will be filled with sharing, giving, fun times and touching lives as it is every year. Celebrity guests will be in attendance to offer words of encouragement, sign autographs, story-telling, take pictures and assist with passing out back packs to our children.
Each year, The Kierrah Foundation, along with the generosity of the community assists approximately 50 children with school supplies. This tradition was started by the Founders of The Kierrah Foundation, Brandy "Auntee" Sanders and her late husband Stan "Unc" Sanders. It is their "vision turned reality" in serving young women and their children who have "aged-out' of the foster car system that has made such an powerful impact on everyone outside the community as well including celebrities.
Past celebrity supporters of The Kierrah Foundation include: Michael Coylar, Parker McKenna Posey, Official Kierrah Foundation Spokesperson and Kierrah's Angel of Laughter Luenell, Brenda Lee Eager, Ayanna Stokes, Alfre Woodard, Spinderella, Kymedienne, Mc Lyte, California Dolphins, D.j.

About The Kierrah Foundation:
The Kierrah Foundation assist young women who have "aged-out" of the foster care system. Many of these women are young mothers themselves. The Kierrah Foundation's objective is to empower former foster girls to become self-sufficient and avoid the pitfalls of aging out of the system which can include poverty, homelessness, victims of domestic violence, substance abuse, prostitution, gang affiliation, aimlessness and automatic slippage into welfare and perhaps the most frightening for these young women, losing their own children to the foster care system.
