The 9th Santa Barbara Million Dollar Home Raffle also benefits a number of Non-Profit Partners, who along with The Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF) will raise funds through the sale of raffle tickets. The first group of non-profit organizations that will be partnering with CAF to sell tickets include the Village Properties Teacher’s Fund, Santa Barbara Solstice Celebration, Surf Happens Foundation, New Noise Foundation, Santa Barbara Lacrosse Association, and Postpartum Education for Parents. Look for e-mails and social media announcements from CAF and its Non-Profit Partners on how to purchase tickets, or buy directly from the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum.

“The Santa Barbara Million Dollar Home Raffle ticket sales have allowed the Contemporary Arts Forum (CAF) to raise funds to provide a crucial foundation for arts in our communities over the past eight years,” said Miki Garcia, Executive Director of the Contemporary Arts Forum. “This year the Contemporary Arts Forum is thrilled to share the fundraising opportunity with a number of non-profits with missions we support.”

“We are very excited to partner with CAF on the 2013 Santa Barbara Million Dollar Home Raffle”, said Claudia Bratton, Executive Director of Santa Barbara Solstice. “What a great way to support the arts organizations that bring creativity, joy and life to our community.”
