Last year’s event, “Heart of Gold Masquerade,” was held in the showrooms of Santa Barbara Auto Group and drew several hundred guests.
This year’s event, a benefit for the Foster Kids Holiday Giving Program, promises to be even better, with music by Santa Barbara’s premier dance band, King Bee, DJ Tru, costume contests, food and a hosted bar from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Additionally, the Doubletree Resort is offering a limited number of room specials for the evening, so guests can enjoy the party until 1 am, without having to think about getting home. Also, thanks to the generosity of The Endless Summer Bar-Cafe, the first 150 people through the door will receive a $10 gift certificate to the eatery.
Tickets are $75, which includes the four-hour hosted bar, and can be purchased from the Rotary Club at 805.450.4321, or click here to purchase tickets online. For special room discounts at the Doubletree, call 805.884.8511.
