Partying for a Purpose produces all the fundraisers for the It’s All About the Kids Foundation. All of our events are filled with entertainment, food, drinks and fun. We truly “Party for a Purpose” because we believe in having a great time while supporting great causes. It is our responsibility to help other, and if we can do that while having a great time, then it is that much sweeter! Below are the upcoming events that we are producing !

The It’s All About the Kids Foundation is happy to announce that we have been chosen as the #2 Children’s Charity in San Diego, according to www.hauteliving.com. The Miami based internet site that highlights the best of everything in major cities.
“The national recognition that our charity is receiving is a testament to the good work that the board and Angela have done over the years. We should all be proud that our organization never sought recognition but only focused on doing good work for those in need in San Diego.” said Shawn Heyl, It’s All About the Kids President and Co-Founder. “Every once in a while we find ourselves involved in a business or organization that we really can be proud to be a part of and that really makes a difference. ”

The 2nd Annual International Bacon Film Fest was awesome. An evening devoted to bacon showcasing short films about the greatest piece of meat known to man. Bacon. In an effort to show bacon the respect it deserves, we found on the flight deck of the historical USS Midway Museum aircraft carrier! WHAT an amazing venue, the short documentaries were great and The Routine tore it up! And yes, Bacon…bacon wrapped hot dogs, Bacon cheeseburger sliders, bacon mac and cheese, with Hormel Black Label Chocolate or Maple bacon on a stick! yep..that was the menu!

Thank you to organizers Gus Thompson, Robert and Amber Esparza and all the sponsors for making this the best festival of the summer. Can’t wait for 2015. Mark you calendars now.

The year was 2008. The original Eclipse Chocolat Cafe had opened just six months prior. Independence Day weekend was quickly approaching, & Will had been dabbling in cupcakery ever since he opened his doors. Pastry was not his first passion… frankly, it’s wasn’t even his fourth, but what was a well to-do chocolate shop without a signature cake? And cakes in cups were all the rage! With enough time & experimentation surely he could perfect a recipe or two?
The first Cupcake Extravaganza saw no less than 28 exotic flavors, but arguably few were “perfected”. Maple Bacon Date? Sweet Onion Caramel? They’ve reeled it in a bit since then, but ever since the first July 4th frenzy, they’ve kept around a dozen delicious cupcake flavors in our daily rotation. When Independence Day weekend rolls around again each year, they feature a new collection of yummy cakes each filled with exotic fillings & topped with rich chocolate ganache or whipped vanilla bean swiss meringue. But Cupcake Extravaganza doesn’t stop there! The Box of Nine Cupcakes is discounted to just $20 (normally $30), & each box purchased is an entry into our Opportunity Drawing in which the lucky winner – Sarah Gilbert – won a “Year of Cupcakes”. That’s right… 365 cupcakes, at her disposal, either one box at a time or in one deliciously lump sum!
They’ve come a long way since then, baby! This year they decided to highlight the company mission to support our community by doubling down with TWO Grand Prizes! Not only will one of the guests enjoy the $1200 prize, but they will award a SECOND prize to It’s All About The Kids®, a San Diego non-profit benefiting children in need. Better yet, they have a full weekend of events all wrapped up with the promotion. THANK YOU SO MUCH ECLIPSE CHOCOLATE!
