Home / Uncategorized / Spring Gala to Benefit the SBCC Foundation


The SBCC Foundation’s inaugural gala will be on Saturday, April 27, 2019. The event will be held on the beautiful Santa Barbara City College campus, in the Sports Pavilion, which will be transformed into an elegant venue by Merryl Brown Events.

Attendees will enjoy an exquisite dinner prepared and served by the renowned Seasons Catering, with assistance from SBCC Culinary Arts students. SBCC Music faculty and students will bring their talents and mastery to the event. (They most recently played a sold-out show at the Lobero Theatre, alongside world-class musician Michael McDonald). SBCC Art students will create original works of art that will adorn the tables and stage.

Please join us in celebrating our community’s college and supporting student success!
