The Profant Foundations Fiesta Finale!

Venue (website)

El Paseo Restaurant

The Profant Foundation’s Fiesta Finale Gala will be held on Sunday, August 8th, 2021, starting at 5:30 at the historic El Paseo Restaurant.

Continuing a Profant tradition, the entertainment will feature “artwork that comes to life” not only with posed actors and performers, but with the audience itself. This year’s subject is a photo that includes the beloved Gil Rosas performing in 1960. He will be joining the Gala this year to recreate the photo.

The central fountain has been removed and once again and Theater-in-the-Round will resume at the iconic restaurant.

This year’s Event Producer, Musette Profant, is coordinating a delicious gourmet dinner, a costume contest, and dancing under the stars. Renowned flamenco performer Lakshmi “La Chimi” Basile will set the floor afire with Ricardo Chavez and his troupe. Six professional dancers from Arthur Murray Dance Studio Santa Barbara/Beverly Hills, tenor Marco Antionio Labastida, ballerina Jessamyn Vedro, and the Martinez Brothers will perform, and the SB Piano Brothers have a special surprise for their loyal fans.

Now celebrating its 21st year as a non-profit organization, the Profant Foundation has given hundreds of scholarships to developing artists of all ages and has sponsored exhibits and performances for arts education.

The Profant family joins in this year’s Old Spanish Days theme of “Honoring Our Generations” by hosting a celebration in the tradition of their grandparents and great-grandparents. Nearly 100 years ago, the Profants began their involvement in the Santa Barbara cultural community by helping to launch Community Arts Music Association (CAMA), the Music Academy of the West, and Old Spanish Days. The next generations created a charitable organization in the spirit of generosity established by their father John E. Profant. Scholarships are made available through community support and proceeds from the annual Gala.
