Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara presents the 34th Annual Scholarship Event on Sunday, May 5th at 6PM at the Goleta Valley & Teen Center, 4973 Hollister Avenue. Event proceeds provide scholarship assistance so that any girl, regardless of her family’s financial situation, can participate in Girls Inc.’s transformational programs.

Emmy-award winning journalist and KEYT anchor Beth Farnsworth will lead a lively panel discussion with current and former Girls Inc. girls about the lasting impact of their Girls Inc. experiences.

The panel includes:

  • Captain Marylinda Arroyo, Santa Barbara Police Department
  • Marsha Kotlyar, Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Agent
  • Roz, 10th grade
  • Fiona, 5th grade

Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara awarded $477,233 of financial assistance in sliding scale scholarships and sibling discounts in 2018. This assistance made it possible for 461 girls to attend Girls Inc.’s after-school and CAMP IGNITE summer programs last year.

Event tickets are $300 each and may be reserved online or by calling Girls Inc. at 805-963-4757. Event details and a complete list of sponsors are available girlsincsb.org.
