Santa Barbara Christian School is holding its annual benefit auction and dinner, Points of Light: A Celebration of Service, on Feb. 23 at the Reagan Ranch Center, 217 State St. in Santa Barbara. The festivities get under way at 5 p.m.
The fundraiser will showcase the school’s commitment to community service and highlight students’ involvement in charitable programs such as Unity Shoppe, Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, Operation Christmas Child and Soldiers’ Angels.
The featured guest speaker is John Shepherd, founder and president of MPower Pictures and producer of Focus on the Family’s The Family Irreplaceable, a follow-up to the successful The Truth Project, a DVD-based small-group curriculum designed to communicate the Christian world view.
For more than 50 years, Santa Barbara Christian School (K-8) has provided academic excellence and the development of faith, values and character for our students to equip them for leadership and service in the community. The annual auction is an evening of fellowship, service and sacrificial giving. It is the school’s largest fundraiser, underwriting the tuition of all SBCS students.
