Each November, the Santa Barbara community comes together to recognize and honor the local men and women in uniform who have served our country. While the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on social gatherings is forcing many local non-profits to pivot to virtual fundraisers on Zoom, we have found a new way to gather to observe Veterans Day in a safe, family-friendly way. This year we are breaking with our longstanding tradition of hosting the formal Military Ball, instead we are hosting a very special Veterans Day “Night at the Drive-In!” You will pick up a gourmet BBQ boxed dinner upon entry and proceed to your parking space. The program will begin at 5:30 PM, featuring a stage show presentation, silent digital auction, screening of the World War II movie Memphis Belle, and a few surprises. General admission tickets are $50 per person, & $10 for children 10 years old and younger. Veterans and active duty service members can purchase scholarship tickets at a reduced rate.

Proceeds raised by the event will honor and support our local veterans and those on active duty.

When you purchase your tickets, if you select Active Duty or Veteran Scholarship you will be required to show proof of Veteran or Active Duty status upon entry to the event, any proof will do.
