When you grab your tickets for SliceFest 2021, you can feel good knowing that proceeds support a great cause: the Suki Foundation. The Suki Foundation supports those living with Rett Syndrome, a developmental disorder, in honor of local child Sarah Katherine diagnosed with Rett Syndrome.

Since 2011, SliceFest has donated more than $80,000 to the Suki Foundation and other charitable organizations. *Cue the confetti cannons.* We can’t wait to see how they’re able to contribute to the Suki Foundation this year.
