On Friday, $1,000 was raised to support Santa Barbara Humane when community members had the opportunity to attend “Soaring and Supporting,” a community event hosted by the Santa Barbara Trapeze Co. to benefit the organization.
“Last night’s community event with Santa Barbara Humane will stand out as a pivotal moment in the maturation of our journey as a team and as friends,” Randy Kohn, co-owner of the Santa Barbara Trapeze Co., told the News-Press.
Attendees dined on tacos and learned about Santa Barbara Humane’s services while watching a spectacular trapeze show. There were even opportunities for thrill-seeking attendees to try taking flight themselves, guided by a team of professionals.
“There was a great turnout and it was a tremendous success in raising awareness about Santa Barbara Humane services,” Rebecca Samuelson, Philanthropy & Outreach Specialist for SB Humane, told the News-Press.
Located in the dog-friendly urban greenery of Plaza Vera Cruz off of Cota St. and Haley St., Santa Barbara Trapeze Co. provides aerial fitness opportunities for anyone from beginners to experts. Santa Barbara Trapeze is open to all ages, and hosts a summer camp for kids.
“We really like having our park open, it’s the best kept secret in town that you can come in and sit and enjoy the show,” said Mr. Kohn.
“It was really amazing that partnerships like these bring awareness to the services we offer that help so many pets and their families throughout Santa Barbara county. We were so happy to see so many people in the community come out and support Santa Barbara Trapeze Co. and benefit Santa Barbara Humane,” said Ms. Samuelson.
