Starting off the 2018 new year, our January Charity of the Month was the Kick Ash Bash. The Kick Ash Bash is fundraiser started by local Montecito residents. They wanted to provide an opportunity for the community of Santa Barbara to extend a massive and most necessary thank you the firefighters and first responders who have worked tirelessly since the recent Thomas Fire and mudslides. The Bash will take place on Sunday, February 25th and features live music, food and beverages, and family friendly entertainment. All firefighters and their families can attend the event at no cost, thanks for countless donations from generous individuals and local organizations from Santa Barbara County.
All of the funds raised from The Bash are going directly to the Santa Barbara Firefighters Alliance; a committee within the SBFA will also be contributing a large portion of the funds raised to benefit survivor relief. The men and women who worked so courageously to protect our city from back-to-back natural disasters will have the opportunity to provide funding where they see it being the most useful. In total, the awesome members at Mad Fitness SB were able to raise $5,387! We are so thankful to have the chance to give back to such a great cause. For more information about the event or if you are interested in making donation to the Kick Ash Bash, please visit www.one805.org
We are so amazed by everyone’s unwavering camaraderie during the tragedies that our community has faced these past few months. Your acts of kindness and generosity are nothing short of inspirational and the reason why we are able to donate to a local charity or non-profit each month! Our February Charity of the month is the Santa Barbara branch of the American Heart Association! Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming AHA events.
