Registration Opens for Alma Rosa Vineyard’s “Peace of Thoughts: 10,000 Steps within the Proper Path” Fundraiser Benefiting Psychological Well being
July 24th, and the hike begins at 9:00 AM with an estimated total time of 1 1/2 to 2 hours
Peace of Mind: 10,000 Steps in the Right Direction was designed by Alma Rosa Winery owners Bob and Barb Zorich to support community mental health services and research. Following the success of the winery’s inaugural event, which took place practically last September and raised over $ 144,000, the Zorichs are excited to announce a fund-matching initiative. You will match the first $ 35,000 in donations to each One Mind and Mental Wellness Center for a total of $ 70,000.
“We are humble about the public support for this event and for these two organizations that are doing such critical work,” says Bob Zorich. “We are confident that these agents will make a significant difference in the fight against anxiety and depression in our local community and beyond.”
Fundraisers can win prizes generously donated by community sponsors, including field-side seating for the Santa Barbara Polo Club games.
