Most of the merchants in the center will be sharing their storefronts with a wide variety of non-profits allowing them a venue to show the public just what it is that makes these non-profit organizations so valuable to our community.
Not just an educational opportunity, there will be fun activities and a party atmosphere for the whole family, including music, 2 photo booths, three bounce castles, balloon animals, a fire truck courtesy of SB County Fire and AMR Ambulance, animal rescue and adoptions, food sampling from participating restaurants and much more.
The Goleta Chamber of Commerce will also have a booth as will Noozhawk who will have their mascot Scoop on hand.
Support is also provided by Sidekick Creative, the UPS Store and FedEx Office, and The Front Page.
Last year over 45 storefronts participated and hundreds of parents and kids came by to lend their support to their favorite non-profit group.
