About The Sauce Foundation
The Sauce Foundation was created to honor the legacy of Fernanda's husband, writer and editor Mike Saucier. Mike died at home on November 1, 2017, with his family by his side, after a brief battle with pancreatic cancer.
Mike wrote stories for a living, as a journalist and a public relations consultant. In Phoenix, he was the founder and owner of Soss Communications, a consulting business, and the proud editor of Frontdoors, a magazine that focuses on philanthropy and giving. Prior to moving to Arizona, Mike worked as a press secretary in the administration of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg in New York, as a foreign and city editor at The New York Sun, and as a copy editor at TheStreet.com, Boston Herald, and Naples Daily News in Florida.
The Sauce Foundation supports two important causes: funding pancreatic cancer research, and providing scholarships for students at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications. Mike was incredibly passionate about education equity, so we will foster a new generation of Mike Sauciers — kind, thoughtful storytellers who will make the world a better place.
Mike was beloved by everyone who knew him as a colleague, friend, son, brother, father and husband. We hope you will learn more about The Sauce Foundation and join us in honoring his legacy by contributing to our cause.
We miss you, Mike.
