7th Annual Gala
The Junior League of Santa Barbara's 7th Annual Gala:
The Junior League of Santa Barbara celebrated our 7th Annual Gala, in addition to our 90 years of service in the community on April 11, 2015 at the Coral Casino in Montecito.
We raised $94,000 for our cause- a record for the JLSB.
The Gala is our highlight event of the year, and the funds we raised will further the mission of the league through membership training, programming and other worthy initiatives, to help continue with our success of bettering the community.
During this event, unveiled the Junior League of Santa Barbara’s new Focus Area. A completely re-imagined focus that will help us dig deeper into the greatest needs of our community and put valuable volunteer hours towards those needs.
Thank you to The Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara for their generous sponsorship to the Junior League of Santa Barbara!
