Join us for the best happy hour in Santa Barbara!

May 12, July 14, September 8

For more than 19 years, EDC’s tgif!s have been a staple of the south central coast’s summer season. Known as one of the best happy hours in Santa Barbara, tgif! features live music, refreshing beverages, and tasty hors ‘d oeuvres. Join the fun in the great company of regional nonprofit and environmental organizations, elected officials and good people from throughout the south central coast. The 2016 tgif! season was generously underwritten by Accountability Plus, Energy Independence Now, Sunrun, and Toyota. Each tgif! is sponsored by up to four nonprofit organizations, many of which are EDC clients. For information on sponsorship, please contact us.

Ways to Help

Much of the success of our tgif! series is thanks to the numerous businesses and individuals in our community that contribute raffle items, food, and wine. We are constantly seeking new donors and do our best to promote supporting businesses on our invitations, email invitations, newsletters, and on our website.

Hosting a monthly happy hour for 250 supporters is not as easy as we make it look! We greatly appreciate your help. For more information on sponsorship, donations, and volunteering please contact Betsy Weber by email or calling 963-1622.
