Florida woman pushes for ‘Sugar Daddy and Mommy Appreciation Day’ at board meeting

TAMPA, Fla. — A Florida woman earlier this month lobbied to designate today, March 10, as “Sugar Daddy and Mommy Appreciation Day.”


According to WFLA in Tampa, Ashley Cream addressed the board after it discussed amending the city code regarding the storage of flammable liquids.

She was joined by an elderly man who stood up from a wheelchair and walked beside her to the podium.

“You guys may not be aware, but Florida has the largest per-capita population of sugar daddies in the U.S.,” Cream said, the station reported.

She pointed out that Miami, Palm Beach and Boca Raton have the most “concentrated populace of these aged benefactors,” according to the station.

“Sugar daddies both gay and straight – and yes, even sugar mommies – are responsible for college educations, cars, homes, rents, jets, Birkin (bags), and the occasional body enhancement,” Cream said, gesturing to her chest, the station reported. “But not me, though. I’m all-natural.”

Cream said the “aged benefactors” support the local economy, according to the station.

Cream asked that March 10 be Sugar Daddy and Mommy Appreciation Day to “honor those who have given us so much,” according to the station.

Board Member Arnold Sevell told her, “That’s a City Council issue,” the station said.
