Your chance to win the California dream has arrived. The Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara (MCASB) launched its 10th Million Dollar Home Raffle. To celebrate the anniversary, this year’s Grand Prize Winner will get to choose between two homes, or the $1 million in cash! As always, a Santa Barbara home will be offered. For 2014, the Santa Barbara home has mountain views and is close to the beach, shops, and parks. New this year is an additional Malibu home, which is steps from the beach, has ocean views, and is close to shops and restaurants.

To thank participants for their continued support, MCASB has doubled the amount of prizes to be given away; this year 1 in 50 tickets will win a prize! Additional bonus prizes totaling over $200,000 in value include: cars, vacations, shopping sprees, electronics, and more. The fundraiser benefits MCASB and its Non‐Profit Partners. The earlier participants enter, the more chances they have to win. Ticket buyers will also enjoy discounts and access to hundreds of other museums nationwide as members of the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara.

“The Santa Barbara Million Dollar Home Raffle ticket sales have supported our organization for the past nine years,” said Miki Garcia, Executive Director of MCASB. “Thanks to your support, we have transformed our small art organization into a museum! MCASB is able to provide educational programs 100% free of charge while growing its mission to advance creativity and inspire critical thinking through engagement with the art of our time.”

Raffle Director Sarah Brisendine added: “We wanted to incorporate our supporters in the celebration of our anniversary, and thank them for our success. We thought the best way to accomplish this would be through offering the best Grand Prize yet, as well as drastically increasing the chances to win other bonus prizes.”

About the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara MCASB was founded as Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF) in 1976 by artists and supporters seeking a venue that was dedicated solely to contemporary art. These initial organizers envisioned a “forum” for the display of and discussion about artwork being made today, both locally and in the larger national and international art community. What once began as a grassroots, artist‐run organization with nominal funding now serves as the leading contemporary arts presenter in Central California. MCASB does not charge admission fees because MCASB believes that the arts should be accessible to all audiences of all persuasions. It truly is foundations and individuals from the community and around the country that keep MCASB active, inspired, and alive with opportunities for artists, children, and adults to experience all that the visual and performing arts have to offer. MCASB is located at the Paseo Nuevo Shopping Center Upper Arts Terrace in downtown Santa Barbara, CA, with a second location, MCASB Satellite @ Hotel Indigo Santa Barbara, at 121 State Street, Santa Barbara, CA.
