Overnight Stay to Benefit Cancer Center and a Course on Self-Defense


Cancer Center Fundraiser

Take a one-night getaway and help a good cause. For the month of June, the Mirabelle Inn & Restaurant is hosting a Room Raiser, with proceeds going to the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara. All that’s required is a $100 donation (or more if you like) and you get one night at the recently renovated downtown Solvang establishment. Included in your stay is a full breakfast. Available Room Raiser dates are June 11, 15-18, 22-25, and 29-30. For more info, call 688-1703 or visit mirabelleinn.com.

Self-Defense

Next weekend, Martial Arts Family Fitness (122 E. Gutierrez St.) is once again offering its Real Deal Self-Defense seminar for women. During the 10-hour, two-day course, participants learn practical defense skills as well as explore the psychological effects of fear. Friday, June 19, from 6-10 p.m.; and Saturday, June 20, from noon-6 p.m. Call 963-6233. For a first-person account of Real Deal, visit independent.com/selfdefense
