San Diego – Dec. 21, 2015 – Chula’s Mission will kick the New Year off in style with its first-ever “Sugar & Spice Soiree” fundraiser to celebrate the infinite bond between a mother and daughter, as well as raise funds for programs that help motherless girls. “Sugar & Spice Soiree” is Thursday, Jan. 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Horton Grand Hotel in Downtown San Diego.

“Sugar & Spice Soiree” will be a fun, chic, upscale happy hour for women to get together, have fun and support their local community. Guests will enjoy complimentary signature spicy cocktails, delicious sugary treats, music, a photo booth, and will have an opportunity to mix and mingle while bidding on exclusive selection of silent auction items. Proceeds from the event benefit Chula’s Mission, a nonprofit that aims to mentor and nurture young motherless girls through San Diego County. The nonprofit is the first of its kind in the nation.

“The bond between a mother and daughter is special and important,’ said Mayra San Juan, co-founder, Chula’s Mission. “The ‘Sugar & Spice Soiree’ aims to have a night of sisterhood, to strengthen relationships and form new, all while increasing support for young girls who are less fortunate.”

Event proceeds benefit the programs and outreach activities of Chula’s Mission, which includes a unique and dynamic grief counseling program for young motherless girls. Their programs incorporate cooking classes, which are designed to aid in the healing process, by providing the comforts found in a tradition shared by many mothers and daughters. The goal is for each girl coming through Chula’s Mission to grow into a bright, well-adjusted and successful young woman. Through the generous hearts of volunteers and benefactors, motherless girls will have the opportunity to heal and thrive.

“Growing up without a mother is a challenging experience for anyone at any age, ” said Lyndsey Ruiz, co-founder, Chula’s Mission. “A strong support system is crucial, and we hope to make our community aware of the programs we offer, as well as the ways to become involved and make a difference in the lives of young girls during an important phase of their lives.”

There are a limited number of tickets available to this event. Tickets can be purchased at for $35 each. Sponsorships are still available.
