CALM is hosting its 10th annual CALM at Heart benefit, CALM at Heart: Transforming Communities, 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 4 at a private estate in Montecito. CALM at Heart is an inspiring, mission-driven event to raise funds to support CALM’s childhood trauma prevention and treatment programs.

CALM strives to create a community where everyone works together to provide the strongest possible start for its children. This year’s theme, Transforming Communities, acknowledges the collective trauma of the past year will impact Santa Barbara County for generations, and the opportunity to shape our future.

CALM recognizes that vulnerable children and families may require more intensive and long-lasting supports.

“The last 19 months have changed us all,” said Alana Walczak, CALM’s president/CEO. “CALM’s efforts to address the impacts of this sustained trauma and long-term mental health needs of our community are collaborative and innovative. CALM at Heart: Transforming Communities honors the challenges we have all faced, while envisioning a more supportive, vibrant future for our community.”

Guests of CALM at Heart will spend an afternoon with Walczak and emcee Geoff Green of Santa Barbara City College Foundation, while enjoying an all-outdoor lunch in a garden setting.
