United Way of Santa Barbara County to Host 21st Annual Red Feather Ball Oct. 6

Dance the night away at United Way of Santa Barbara County’s (UWSBC) 21st Annual Red Feather Ball on Oct. 6 to honor community philanthropist Maryan Schall and benefit the nonprofit’s award-winning Fun in the Sun summer learning program and United for Literacy initiative.

The “Twilight on the Pacific” themed event will be held 6-10 p.m. Oct. 6 at the Four Seasons Biltmore Coral Casino and bring together committed philanthropists and admired leaders throughout the community. UWSBC will honor Maryan Schall with the 2017 Abercrombie Community Excellence Award for her decades of outstanding service and generosity within the Santa Barbara community.

“The Red Feather Ball is a chance for us to give a special thank you to our most outstanding supporters, and we’re honored to recognize Maryan Schall for her extraordinary generosity and commitment to helping others,” said Steve Ortiz, United Way of Santa Barbara County President & CEO. “Maryan has helped make so much of what we do at United Way possible through her leadership and generosity, most recently through a $35,000 challenge grant to help fully fund United Way’s Kindergarten Success Institutes. We hope you’ll join us in showing our gratitude.”

The black tie or cocktail attire gala will feature wine, cocktails and a curated silent auction. Guests will dine in the beautiful La Pacifica Ballroom overlooking the strikingly lit Pacific Ocean. The Los Angeles area band The Spare Keys will keep the celebration lively.

Proceeds from the Red Feather Ball support UWSBC’s national award-winning Fun in the Sun and United for Literacy programs, which make it possible for nearly 10,000 disadvantaged children and families in Santa Barbara County access to benefit from life-changing educational programs.
