Pat on the Back

By Richard Mineards   |   June 14, 2018

The Kick Ash Bash, thrown at polo-playing hotel magnate Pat Nesbitt‘s sprawling Summerland estate in February, certainly lived up to its name as checks totaling more than $1.3 million to first responder organizations, including the City and County fire departments, the Montecito Fire Protection District, SB City Police, Direct Relief, and SB County sheriff, were handed out.

Much of the funding from One805 is for the purchase of mobile command units and other emergency equipment not covered in normal budgets.

Supporters attending the presentation ceremony at the city fire station were Eric and Nina Phillips, Diana Starr Langley, Alex Broumand, Joanne Funari, Mindy Denson, Chip Hickman, Lori Luhnow, Richard Weston-Smith, John Thyne, Thomas Tighe, and Greg Hons.
