Anniversary Benefit Gala

On March 14th over 320 supporters from across the tri-counties gathered at the Coral Casino in Santa Barbara to celebrate PPSBVSLO's 50th anniversary and raise $300,000 for health services, education programs and advocacy efforts. Guests enjoyed a "picture-perfect" sunset cocktail reception on the La Pacifica Terrace with entertainment provided by Extreme Stilt-Walker Eros Biox, a former Cirque de Soleil performer, photo opportunities with models in "condom couture," a boutique silent auction and a chance to win a pair of diamond earrings from Silverhorn Jewelers.

The dinner began and ended on a high note with the amazing singer Camille Umoff, currently a student at Santa Barbara High School. During dinner President and CEO, Cheryl Rollings, shared highlights of our affiliate's history and Planned Parenthood patients shared stories of how Planned Parenthood changed their lives. A big thank you to our tireless co-chairs, Leslie Bhutani and Lundy Reynolds, and our Gala Committee for a fantastic celebration event. We are profoundly grateful as well to all of you who attended our celebration and supported it so generously.
