Sizzlin’ For Seals Soirée – Thursday, October 27, 2022

As a lifelong resident of Baton Rouge, I realize the power of community. This community has supported my businesses over the years and in turn, our company has made a point in giving back wherever and whenever we can. When a community or group of people join together for a cause, I know that good things usually happen. That’s why my wife Luci and I created The Stabiler Foundation — an organization that partners with the community to support some of the causes that are important to us all: children, the military, hunger issues and local community needs.

In 2018 and again in 2019 we celebrated our annual fundraiser, the Sizzlin’ for Seals Soirée to benefit The Navy Seal Foundation. This cause is very close to my heart, since I have a dear friend who is a retired Navy Seal. These men put their lives on the line to protect the very freedom that we enjoy every day. Each of those events were a huge success!

With the help of generous folks in the community, to date, we’ve raised over $400,000 collectively to benefit tragedy assistance, warrior and family support, educational opportunities, and child development.

I would like to personally invite you to be a part of our 2022 Sizzlin’ For Seals Soirée held on Thursday, October 27, 6:00 pm at Live Oak Arabians Arena.

You will enjoy a delicious dinner of Prime Beef Tenderloin and Maine lobster prepared by chefs from the Stabiler Family of Restaurants. There will be a live & silent auction featuring amazing items for bid!

Just like in 2018 / 2019, not just “a portion,” but 100% of the funds raised from the evening will go to the Seal Future Foundation. In addition, The Stabiler Foundation will match funds raised at this event to support residents of Grand Isle affected by Hurricane Ida.

For more information on tickets or how you might become involved as a Sponsor, please visit http://www.sizzlinforseals.home.qtego.net.

I really hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

Wayne

Ending Hunger

Lifelong residents of Baton Rouge, Luci and Wayne Stabiler have experienced the power of community time and time again. Over the years the Baton Rouge area and its people have supported the Stabiler’s businesses in the food service industry, catering and their locally owned restaurants.

Bringing local food and resources to the table has always been a philosophy of the organization. And giving back to the community when and where they can has been an honored practice since the start.

Supporting Local Causes

The Stabiler Foundation seeks to enhance Louisiana’s communities throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area with a special focus on children, the military, and the food insecure. By assisting and supporting other philanthropic initiatives and programs in the community such as these, The Stabiler Foundation is helping to build a strong, healthy community.

The Foundation is currently providing support to these organizations.

The Stabiler Foundation is happy to assist other local charities and foundations that need our financial help. If your non-profit organization has a need, please reach out via our contact form. Your request will be evaluated as soon as possible.

The Navy SEAL Foundation’s programs are specifically designed to address the unique needs of the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community, who sacrifice their time spent with family; their safety risking their lives to defend America; and, at times, the ultimate sacrifice—losing their lives for the pursuit of freedom.

Karen Vaughn to speak at Sizzlin’ for Seals Soiree

Karen Vaughn is the mother of fallen US Navy SEAL, Aaron Carson Vaughn (SEAL Team VI). On August 6, 2011 Aaron was killed in action in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan when a chopper (call sign Extortion 17) carrying thirty Americans was shot from the sky while rushing into battle. Losing Aaron changed everything…and put Karen on a new path.

National Bestselling Author, Karen Vaughn to speak at Sizzlin’ for Seals Soirée benefiting the Navy Seal Foundation on November 2, 2019.
National Bestseller!
“An absolutely amazing book!” 
BRAD THOR – #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
 
“One of the most important books you’ll read in your life…”
ANDY ANDREWS – New York Times Bestselling Author
 
“This book is a must read for those who want to understand the sacrifice of the men, and the families, who have given all in the battle of the War on Terror.”
SCOTT MCEWEN  – #1 New York Times Bestselling Co-Author American Sniper

Over the past seven years, Karen has emerged on the national scene as a powerful spokeswoman for not only our defenders still fighting on foreign soil and securing peace across the globe, but also as an advocate for a better, stronger, more resilient America.

Carrying on Aaron’s legacy has brought this Gold Star mother through the halls of Congress, into a National Press Conference, onto dozens of national television sets and well over one hundred radio programs. She’s been featured on large stages across this country as a keynote speaker, including a guest speaker position during opening night of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

Karen has been married to Billy Vaughn for thirty-eight years and still believes her greatest accomplishment on earth was raising her three children, Aaron, Tara, and Ana. She’s also the proud grandma of six.
