Santa Barbara’s oldest private school – The Howard Carden School (now based in Carpinteria)- will celebrate Spring getting back to the “grassroots” of what’s important in life: community, education, delicious, hearty & heavy appetizers by Chef Rick Rossignol and Chef Nirasha Rodriguez , fabulous drinks, and live music with the the beloved local band SolTree . There will be incredible items on which to bid, but even if you don’t bid, come for the community, music, fun, and to take in the atmosphere.
Held on Saturday, April 23rd at 3pm, “Grassroots” is designed to help raise funds for Howard, a non-profit school which boasts a world-class education from preschool through 8th grade for over 100 years. There will be something for everyone, and unlike many formal fundraisers, this one was specifically designed to pay tribute to and celebrate the relaxed, casual style of Carpinteria while supporting a worthwhile cause with no pomp and circumstance: just good food, entertainment, community and incredible opportunities to bid on fabulous prizes (see below). Tickets are $25 and can be purchased on the Howard School Website .
