Friends are busy with planning our next fund raising event, which will be August 15th at the Oreana Winery on 205 Anacapa Street in Santa Barbara. It starts at 6P.M. and ends at 8 P.M.
The charge for the event is $20.00, with that is one free glass of wine, and two raffle tickets.
We will be having a silent Auction, and entertainment. It should be a fun night, we are calling “Safari Night”, so if you are so inclined come dressed as if you are going on safari (sorry no wild animals).
We will have a few items from Kenya on sale, as we did at last year’s concert. We plan to have last year’s concert on DVD/Video for sale, in case you missed the event. It will be featuring Lois Mahalia, Gina Eckstine, Omar Arreola, and the R & B Bombers, it was a great concert and we filmed it all.
Good news! Oxnard Rotary had a fund raising event to help with funding for the second phase of the well; they raised $2500, in a Texas Holdem card game. Joe Lanza and I attended, it was a great afternoon, lots of food to eat, nice company, and we welcome Oxnard Rotary into the Rotary Clubs making this second phase of the well happen.
