This was the 9th annual “Fiscal New Year” fête hosted by Ernesto Paredes to get executive directors together for a sip and greet. He had help from a committee of Heidi Holly, Kim Olson, and Sophia Davis

It was held at the former Chuck’s Waterfront Grill near the Maritime Museum. There was even a sponsor this year — HUB. Various agencies brought items for the raffle and there were 100 nonprofits represented. It’s hard to believe there are over 1,000 nonprofits in Santa Barbara and that is probably a conservative figure.

To name a few: Heidi Holly, Friendship Center; Michael Rassler, Hillside House; Barbara Robertson, Scholarship Foundation; David Selberg, Hospice of Santa Barbara; Holly Carmody, Angels Foster Care; and Kathy Odell, Women’s Economic Ventures.

There were cocktails and tapas and much good cheer. Nonprofits have all had a hard time during the pandemic and we hope things are on the upswing.
