Storyteller Children’s Center’s Annual Lunch with Love Fundraiser

By Giving List Staff   |   March 16, 2021

Storyteller Children’s Center is gearing up for its 7th annual Lunchbox Luncheon on Tuesday. As a socially distanced creative pivot from an in-person event, Storyteller will be offering a delivered lunch to our patrons and donors. All participants will receive an amazing lunch catered by Duo and Mission Rose Pasta. Lunch packages will include three choices from the menu: a choice between two soups or fresh pasta and marinara, all served with freshly baked bread and a bottle of Grenache from Babcock winery. Lunches are $85 and serve a party of four. With each lunch purchase there is automatic entry into a raffle to win an original piece of artwork from Pedro De La Cruz. To see Mr. De La Cruz’s work you can visit his website at www.pedrodelacruz-artist.com. Lunches are being delivered on a day during April 13th – 16th between 11 – 1pm. 

Each ticket holder will also receive a link to a short video update on all of our latest projects and programming at Storyteller. 

We hope you will join us for this event to help support our mission to provide high-quality early childhood education for homeless and at-risk children in Santa Barbara County, as well as comprehensive support services for their families. We are currently accepting volunteers to help us deliver lunches to our donors and participants. For more information, please contact Adrienne De Guevara at adrienne@storytellercenter.org.

Mission

The Key Component is Love

“The children and families of Storyteller are working against long odds. At Storyteller, we help families draw upon their own strengths to address their challenges and lay the groundwork for success. The key component is love, expertly delivered. Our teachers support children in their social and emotional growth, helping them to develop the skills necessary in both school and in life. Storyteller meets the needs of the whole family, and we could not do this without the tremendous financial support of our community.”
– Jon Clark, Storyteller Board Member and Donor since 2002
