Join us for the best happy hour in Santa Barbara!

 July 10  –  August 14 – September 11  –  October 9

For more than 21 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 2020 tgif! season is generously underwritten by Brighten Solar, Energy Independence Now, and KellerRohrback. Each tgif! is sponsored by up to four nonprofit organizations, many of which are EDC clients.

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 Daniel Elkin by email or calling 963-1622.
