Reaching for Stars 2014

Reaching for Stars is an evening of incredible fine dining, featuring a five-course gourmet meal prepared on-site and donated by top Santa Barbara area chefs. Local vintners generously donate wine to pair with each menu course, and a skilled wait staff ensures an extraordinary dining experience.

This popular annual event is an important fundraiser to benefit the children and young people in our community who are served by Youth and Family Services YMCA through My Home, Noah’s Anchorage Youth Crisis Shelter, Support and Outreach Services, and the Isla Vista Teen Center.

Bob Bryant and Anne Towbes were our Honorary Chairs for the event this year.
