Let us put our many resources to work to promote what you are doing: your fundraisers, special events, performances, exhibits – we need your stuff!

The #SantaMaria Fave 5’s is growing in popularity and we are delighted to offer this resource for YOU. The events featured are culled from the events that have been posted by our members onto the event calendar at Please post any and all public events onto our calendar so we can support your efforts and help spread the news… near and far!
