PRESS RELEASE / ANNOUNCEMENTS Monday, July 9, 2012

Dia de las Comidas

Join Hospice of Santa Barbara on Thursday, July 12th for Dia de las Comidas as three popular family-owned area restaurants generously open their doors and hearts in support of the organization’s Hispanic Family Services.


Carlitos Café y Cantina in Santa Barbara, Cava Restaurant & Bar in Montecito and Dos Carlitos Restaurant & Tequila Bar in Santa Ynez will donate a generous portion of the day’s proceeds from all three restaurants to Hospice of Santa Barbara.

“My family is proud to help increase the services provided to Hispanic families at Hospice of Santa Barbara,” said Carlos Lopez-Hollis, who owns and operates his family’s trio of renowned restaurants.

While Hospice of Santa Barbara has offered some bilingual counseling in recent years, the organization recently was able to offer a full range of services, and the Spanish-speaking service population has grown significantly in the last two years.

Hospice of Santa Barbara is here to care for everyone in the community coping with loss. Hospice of Santa Barbara’s Hispanic Family Services offers free counseling, support groups and education to help Spanish (and English) speaking adults, teens and children who are experiencing the impact of a life-threatening illness, or grieving the death of a loved one.

Please show your support for Hispanic Family Services at Hospice of Santa Barbara by dining at one of these three establishments on Dia de las Comidas, Thursday, July 12th.

Date: Thursday, July 12th

Time: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
