RFS Thank you

Our 18th Annual Reaching for Stars benefit event on May 24 was a huge success! Together, our sponsors and chefs raised more than $60,000 to benefit the homeless and at-risk youth who receive support through Youth and Family Services YMCA programs: Noah’s Anchorage, St. George Youth Center, My Home, and Support and Outreach Services.

A special thank you to the Santa Barbara Woman’s Club, Rockwood for hosting this very special event.
