With charitable donations to local nonprofits totaling more than $467,000 to date, fundraising to support community needs has been an integral part of the Santa Barbara Triathlon since its inception.
As the presenting sponsor of the Santa Barbara Triathlon, Montecito Bank & Trust is once again inviting the public to help select the nonprofit beneficiary by voting for one of the six pre-selected organizations.
The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara ran a successful campaign to earn the opportunity to be the 2013 Triathlon nonprofit beneficiary.
The lucky nonprofit selected will be the beneficiary of all funds raised by the triathlon’s sponsors, athletes, staff and volunteers in 2014, a goal set at $50,000.
