7th Annual Cooking Up Dreams Fundraising Campaign

Presented by

Marni & Michael Cooney and Tania & John Burke

We are taking a different approach to our annual Cooking Up Dreams fundraiser. Even though there will not be an in-person event this year, our aim is the same: to raise funds for critical mental health counseling and family support services provided by Family Service Agency, Santa Maria Valley Youth & Family Center and Little House by the Park.

Cooking Up Dreams 2021: Recipes for a Brighter Future campaign contributes to our struggling hospitality industry while continuing to help FSA meet the changing needs of the vulnerable people in our community.

Sponsors and participants will receive a booklet with recipes from selected local establishments. Additionally, all participants will be entered into a drawing for gift certificate from a local restaurant valued at $50, $100 or $150.  Your odds of winning are good. We’re raffling off 50 certificates!

Your contribution also benefits many of the restaurants that have supported us in the past.

You could win a Gift Certificate to …

Pane e Vino • Boathouse • Santa Barbara Winery • Rincon Beach Bar
Renaud’s Patisserie & Bistro • Trattoria Uliveto • Shaw’s Steakhouse • Industrial Eats
Wild West Pizza & Grill • Valley Juice Shop • Finch & Fork • Outpost at the Goodland
Santa Barbara FisHouse • Nimita’s Cuisine • Bluewater Grill • The Lark • And more!

Thank you to our Sponsors:

Family Service Agency’s work would not be possible without your generous support.
