Girls Inc. & Signature Parking celebrate 25th Anniversary scholarship luncheon
April 29, 2010
The lush Lotus Land of Montecito served as a stunning backdrop today for the annual Girls Inc. scholarship luncheon. Today’s event marked the 25th anniversary of the One Hundred Committee luncheon which has grown to become the major source of funding for the scholarship programs of Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara, where over 70% of the girls attending their award-winning programs are on scholarship. The luncheon has evolved into one of the Marque events held annually in Santa Barbara with many of areas most well know benefactors, philanthropists, business men and women in attendance.
Past featured speakers have included world-renowned women, accomplished role models and celebrities such as First Lady Barbara Bush, media superstar Oprah Winfrey, First Lady of California Maria Shriver, and Nobel Prize Winner Dr. Wangari Maathai. This year’s speaker was Debra Martin Chase, a two-time Emmy nominated television and film producer.
For the eighth consecutive year Signature Parking was chosen to orchestrate the complex parking and shuttle operation. A team of over twenty valets, directors, and shuttle drivers combined to execute a flawless arival and departure experience for every guest in attendance. The event was a smashing success and we would like to thank Girls Inc. and Lotus Land for their continued support and partnership.
