Sponsor the 4th Annual Cooking Up Dreams

Proceeds from Cooking Up Dreams support Family Service Agency’s youth enrichment programs including Big Brothers Big Sisters, school-based counseling, and youth behavioral health—all programs targeting low-income at-risk youth who, with the help of counseling and mentors, are able to improve their personal growth and academic experience.

Over 300 guests attended the 3rd Annual Cooking Up Dreams on March 31, 2017 and helped raise a record $140,000 for FSA programs. The event featured a culinary competition and delicious samplings from 13 leading local chefs and restaurants.

Congratulations to Adam White of the Santa Barbara FisHouse for winning the People’s Choice for its Signature Prawnton appetizer. The Judge’s Award went to Peter McNee of Convivo for his Pesce Crudo–ahi and avocado on a squid ink cracker. All the food was amazing! Read more about our featured chefs and judges.
