Nia Sanchez, the newly crowned Miss USA 2014, will host National Lollipop Day benefiting The Shade Tree at Sugar Factory Town Square on Sunday, July 20.

Sanchez will sign autographs and take photographs with fans from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. She is the first Nevada beauty queen in history to win the Miss USA crown. The event will be part of Sanchez’s official Las Vegas homecoming celebration.

Miss Nevada Teen USA 2014 Alexa Taylor will also make an appearance to support Sanchez.

Fifty percent of lollipop sales sold at Sugar Factory Town Square on National Lollipop Day will be donated to The Shade Tree Las Vegas, the only 24-hour accessible shelter specifically to meet the needs of women, children, and their pets in Southern Nevada. Sanchez, who once lived in a woman’s shelter with her mother, is an advocate for the organization.

Sugar Factory will also sell its signature Couture Pops at 50 percent off throughout the day, both in-store and online. The fashionable signature pops, priced at $25 each, are the latest designer accessory. Iconic superstars including Britney Spears, Drake, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Sting, Mario Lopez, Nicole Scherzinger, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, and Carmen Electra are just a few of the celebrities who have either endorsed or have been spotted with the sparkly lollipops
