The Junior League of Santa Barbara (JLSB) is excited to partner with the Franklin Children’s Center – a preschool serving 162 low-income students from the Eastside – to provide a family resource area and children’s library on campus. Community members are invited to participate in this FUNdraising event to raise money for the renovation project.
The event will take place at Oreana Winery, 205 Anacapa Street from 7pm to 10pm. Tickets are $15 per person. Each attendee will receive an Oreana wine glass and a glass of wine. There will be live music by local band “Party of Three” and delicious barbeque available from The New Black BBQ food truck.
“The Junior League of Santa Barbara is committed to improving youth literacy in the community. Reading skills help students achieve personal growth and are a key determinate of academic and economic success,” says event coordinator Kate Lechner of Junior League Santa Barbara. “We are excited about this opportunity to make a lasting impact in the lives of local students and families. What better way to give back than to have an event dedicated to two of life’s simple pleasures—reading and wine! ”
All the proceeds from the event will go towards providing books, computers, supplies, and other amenities for the Franklin Children’s Center. JLSB is passionate about this project and hopes the community will help meet our goal of raising $10,000 to provide a family resource area and children’s library.
