FUNdraiser - car show & silent auction 7-25-09

SOFTIN's first major fundraising and community awareness raising event is a car show and silent auction, Saturday, July 25th 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Earl Warren Showgrounds located at Las Positas and the 101 freeway in Santa Barbara (3400 Calle Real, Santa Barbara, Ca 93130 for you GPS navigators).

Please come for the fun and to support the work of SOFTIN to bring at-sea education and personal growth experiences to the special-needs community. 100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit our program for disabled, impaired, victims of abuse, elderly and youths-at-rick. Admission is $10 at the entrance. Parking is expected to be $3.

A great number of car clubs from the southwest are coming to support our cause and show their cars. All car and truck types will be on display. A special section (and trophies) for custom bicycles is planned as a special treat.

Speaking of treats, we will have a live band (Redfish) inside and a DJ outside. We'll have vendor booths filled with goodies and representing supporting businesses. We are gathering lots and lots of used books for a big book sale. The silent auction will be stocked with goodies ranging in value from a few bucks on up to thousands. SOFTIN loves kids and we plan to have fun things for the youngsters to do, so bring the whole family and enjoy the day while supporting SOFTIN.

When you get hungry, famous Woody's is the concessionaire at Earl Warren's Showgrounds and Woody's can fix you up with some good grub.

Our sponsors thus far are: Toyota of Santa Barbara and Redfish. We welcome additional sponsors. We have sponsorship packages of $500, $1,000, $2500 and $5,000. Please contact Capt. Tiffany Vague at
