Food For The Poor Executive Director Angel Aloma named actress Cheryl Ladd an Ambassador For The Poor at the charity’s 12th annual Fine Wines & Hidden Treasures gala recently at The Mar-a-Lago Club.
“Cheryl Ladd is a woman of substance,” said Aloma as he introduced Ladd to the crowd of more than 175 and talked about getting to know her through her work with the charity.
Since 2011, Ladd has championed the needs of the destitute as spokesperson for Food For The Poor’s Angels Of The Poor program. During the gala’s live house rally, homes for 25 destitute families were pledged to be built in Jamaica. Ladd and her husband, Brian Russell, traveled to Haiti from Jan. 20-21 with Food For The Poor representatives to see firsthand the dire situation of destitute families. “To be in the presence of a warrior for the poor is a privilege,” said Ladd, of Aloma.
