3rd Annual Pie for Breakfast for One Step A La Vez Fall Fundraiser
Transform Youths’ Lives with Pie

Calling all bakers and lovers of pie to our 3rd Annual Pie for Breakfast! The pie bake-off and silent auction will benefit the One Step A La Vez program for at-risk youth. One Step A La Vez youth have been in partnership with the Latinos for Engagement, Advancement, Development (LEAD) Employee Resource Group from Southern California Edison (SCE). LEAD will showcase a student-designed “Clean Power” art exhibition demonstrating what clean energy means to students and their community. Eat pie and learn more about clean energy.

The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10am-12pm at the One Step Teen Center, 421 Sespe Ave. Fillmore, CA 93015. The event will include a Clean Power Youth Art Exhibition, pie bake-off contest, and silent auction. There is no cost to attend. All guests can enjoy a slice of pie for breakfast. Anyone who wishes can contribute a homemade or purchased pie as a donation to the silent pie auction or may enter the pie contest.

Pie-bake off contest information: Bakers who would like to be considered for the bakeoff must submit two identical recipe homemade pies between 9am-10am on the contest day at 421 Sespe Ave. Fillmore, CA. Winning pies will be live auctioned at the event. There will be prizes for the winning pies in the categories of crust, filling, best looking, best overall, and best student pie.

“Last year, one prize winning pie auctioned for more than $300! Since we began this event two years ago, it just keeps growing. You do not want to miss the excitement! We’re hoping to have more youth bakers this year, because we have a category for best youth baker.” Kate English, executive director of One Step A La Vez

One Step A La Vez is a teen drop in center serving Fillmore, Santa Paula and Piru teens between the ages of 13 and 19. The majority of One Step A La Vez youth are Latino high school students from low income families who are trained in leadership, service to others and civic engagement. The One Step youth were recently invited by LEAD to visit SCE‘s Irwindale Energy Center to learn about renewable energy.
As a result, the students have engineered a “Clean Power” art exhibition that will be displayed at Pie for Breakfast. All students are welcome to enter artwork on this theme, and there will be prizes for the youth artists.

The mission of the One Step A La Vez program is to serve the communities of the Santa Clara Valley by providing a safe environment for 13-19 year olds and preparing informed, empowered youth who are equipped with the tools to lead; cultivate cultural awareness; bridge the gaps of inequality; and advocate for fair, just and healthy individuals and community.
