7th Annual Cooking Up Dreams Fundraising Campaign

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!

Sponsorships are available now. Tickets will go on sale in April.

Family Service Agency’s work would not be possible without your generous support. On behalf of our Board of Directors, and the 30,000 people who rely on our services, thank you for considering this request.
