Luv's Brownies CEO Aundrea Lacy recently celebrated her company's 10th anniversary with a blow-out bash at Jay Z's 40/40 Club in New York. Lacy also celebrated her "Black Enterprise" November cover story; the sale of the 30,000th copy of her book "Luv Story" and the impending publication of her new book "Brownie Points." And this was also a benefit for Elton's foundation.
The bash was hosted by award winning CNN Business News correspondent Valerie Morris, while actress/vocalist Sheryl Lee Ralph assisted Lacy with a fun-filled brownie baking demonstration.
October 2006 not only marks Luv's Brownies' 10th anniversary, but also Lacy's commitment to AIDS and AIDS awareness month. After learning her father was diagnosed with AIDS, Lacy recommitted her life to giving back, AIDS prevention and awareness. So the Internet bakery founder donated a portion of the gala's proceeds to the EJAF - one that strongly supports minority communities and agencies.
"The foundation focuses on supporting community-based programs that include HIV/AIDS-related physical and mental health services, HIV testing and counseling, street outreach and education, food distribution, assisted living services and much more," she said. "I was glad to use my company's anniversary celebration as a means to raise funds to support the Foundation and its efforts to educate and assist people, and combat the HIV/AIDS epidemic."
