The Rescue Mission’s fourteenth annual fundraiser will be held at the Rancho Dos Pueblos estate on Saturday, October 3 at 2:00 p.m. This year the organization will celebrate 50 years of service to the Santa Barbara Community with their 1950’s themed event Rock Around the Bayou. Guests will select gifts from the souped-up Super Silent Auction, dine on an all-American cuisine presented by Lorraine Lim Catering, and enjoy the music of Elvis Presley performed by James Kruk

This year Ron Gallo, president and CEO of the Santa Barbara Foundation, will be honored with the Léni Fé Bland Award. Ron will be recognized for his concern and advocacy for those who struggle and the important role he often plays in ensuring that philanthropic resources are appropriately stewarded and invested for the maximum benefit to the Santa Barbara Community. His leadership furthers the work of vital organizations like the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.

The funds raised at this event make it possible for the Mission to offer a successful 12-month residential recovery program, as well as provide for homeless guests. Last year, the Bayou event raised over $400,000 to assist people seeking recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. The Mission has helped over 630 people achieve recovery in the last 18 years.
