David Crosby Donates to Senior Housing Project

First Contributor to Rona Barrett Foundation’s Golden Star Campaign


David Crosby and his wife, Jan Crosby, are the first “Golden Star” donors to the Rona Barrett Foundation’s Golden Star campaign. Barrett’s foundation has been fund-raising for an affordable senior living apartment complex called Golden Inn & Village in the Santa Ynez Valley since 2000. Working in conjunction with the county Housing Authority and Surf Development, she was able to finally break ground this April. Barrett, a former entertainment journalist, intends to have each of the 60 low-cost senior care and living apartments sponsored by an entertainment industry celebrity, who will have a permanent plaque displayed next to the unit they’ve supported.
