The 2010 Northern Santa Barbara County Mayors’ Ball will be held on Oct. 2 from 6 p.m. to midnight at the Santa Maria Country Club, 505 W. Waller Lane in Santa Maria.

This elegant evening will feature a gourmet dinner, dancing to Beaujolais, and a silent and live auction. The event is a fundraiser for United for Literacy in Northern Santa Barbara County, a local campaign to promote literacy in our area through the United Way.

The ability to read impacts and improves lives on a most fundamental and life-long level.  We would like to thank the following business leaders for their generosity in donating items for the Chamber of Commerce gift basket that will represent Mayor Larry Lavagnino at the Ball.

The support of these local community leaders is deeply appreciated!

Many thanks to:

Jack O’Keefe, Rancho Maria Golf Club

Terri Stricklin, The Hitching Post of Casmalia

Kenneth Volk, Kenneth Volk Vineyards

Jean-luc Garon, Radisson Hotel Santa Maria

Melissa Kelly, Cachuma Lake Recreation Area

Clair Terrill, Santa Maria Civic Theatre
