The Santa Barbara Sea Shell Association hosts an annual Wine Tasting & Yacht Tours Fundraiser each October at Marina 1 in the Santa Barbara Harbor. The annual wine tasting event is our one and only fundraiser. The funds raised provide for: the maintenance and operation of our sailing dinghies, two safety boats, and boat-storage condos; development of educational materials; and purchase and maintenance of acknowledgments and awards in addition to other operating expenses.
It’s a wonderful evening of tasting wine from local wineries paired with hors d’oeuvres and desserts, while touring several yachts at Marina 1 in the Santa Barbara Harbor. We also host a beer and sausage boat and a silent auction with donations from local businesses.
Adults from each participating family are required to volunteer at the fundraiser and to procure items for the silent auction.
We also welcome event sponsors and wine and beer donations so please contact us if you or your business would be interested in supporting our event.
