For the second year, Shuzz has set its sights on raising $250,000 – 100% of which will be used for shoe donations and medical relief efforts.

“I am so proud that this event is in its sixth year. Our charity has grown so much over the last few years, and we’ve brought some tremendous assets on to our team of volunteers, board and committee members,” said Rita Lombardo, Founder, Shuzz Fund. “We are setting our goal big again this year and we hope to be able to surpass it so that we can give more shoes and medical relief to the children who need our help. We will continue trying to expand our reach until every child in this world has a comfortable pair of shoes that will protect them from injury and disease.”

“Shuzz has helped distribute more than 90,000 pairs of shoes in only six years. I am thrilled to step into the role of President this year to work with an amazing group of people who love children and want to help them,” said Dr. Megan Jack, President, Shuzz Fund. “We have incredible sponsors for SHUZZ | ART | FASHION yet again, including Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, Neiman Marcus Boca Raton and Celebrity Cruises. These sponsors enable us to put together a special night, and we have some big surprises for our guests this year. Our mission is the reason we do all of this. I hope everyone will take a few minutes to look at the photos of children we help, think about going on one of our upcoming distribution trips and definitely get your tickets to the 2016 show.”
