The Mistletoe Gala is Catholic Charities Santa Barbara’s biggest event of the year. Without the resources generated by this event we would not exist! Last year’s huge success at Birnam Wood is encouraging us to aspire to even greater heights this year - and we are going back to Birnam Wood for another delightful and sparkling Advent-tide evening. December 2019’s honoree will be the much beloved Fr. Larry Gosselin of Saint Barbara Parish. Join us for this wonderful evening of aiding the poor, toasting our special guest, and sharing in the love of the Christ Child as we prepare for His glorious coming!
For more information on our upcoming events, please call the Santa Barbara Office at (805) 965-7045.
After last year’s success we are coming back to the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley for this wonderful evening of fellowship and fun. Join the fiesta as we celebrate our parishes’ volunteers with live music and enchiladas! In addition to honoring our volunteers, this dinner raises funds which are vital to Catholic Charities’ mission of serving the poorest and neediest of our county. Having fun while helping your brothers and sisters? Sounds like a win-win to us… Don’t forget your sombreros!
