OUR FOUNDERS

All Stars Helping Kids was created in 1989, when NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott gathered his friends for a dinner to benefit the local community. Astounded that he had raised $100,000 in one night, Ronnie and his wife, Karen, invested the money in several nonprofits fighting poverty in the South Bay.

Since then, ASHK has used this simple formula of raising money and redistributing it to create opportunities in education, health and life skills for disadvantaged youth.
