Taste of the Central Coast to Santa Barbara’s Bacara Resort & Spa

After nine successful years of producing the prestigious Taste of the Central Coast fine food and wine festival in San Luis Obispo, the Family Care Networka non-profit organization that provides supportive services for foster and high-need children and families on the Central Coast, is thrilled to bring their signature fundraising event to beautiful Santa Barbara. Foodies and wine lovers alike, Santa Barbara’s premiere Taste of the Central Coast event at the luxurious Bacara Resort & Spa is on Sunday, October 7, and it’s a day of indulgence that you won’t want to miss!

The first food and wine festival ever to take place at Bacara, Taste of the Central Coast will be a day filled with exquisite local vintages, delectable culinary creations, delightful live entertainment, and more importantly, the day will raise awareness about the Family Care Network’s tremendous efforts to support our community’s children and families. Founded 25 years ago by current CEO, Jim Roberts, with the purpose of creating family-based programs to keep children out of group homes or institutional care, the agency currently serves San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties through multiple programs designed to strengthen and preserve families and individuals. The Family Care Network has touched the lives of over 9,400 individuals over the past 25 years, and is honored to host this event both for the enjoyment of the community and to raise necessary funds to provide life-changing services to community members in need.

“We’ve had so much fun hosting the Taste of the Central Coast in San Luis Obispo for the past 9 years, and are delighted to bring this wonderful event to Santa Barbara. The Santa Barbara community is known for its compassion and generosity, and we hope they will join us to raise a glass and toast to a great cause,” said Roberts.

Relax and enjoy great live music in Bacara’s luxurious oceanfront backdrop, and don’t forget to peruse and bid on the incredible collection of silent and live auction items! “Mr. Santa Barbara” himself, Larry Crandell, will emcee the event and put his humor and wit to good use as auctioneer of the live auction. Larry has raised millions of dollars over the past 40+ years, and the Family Care Network is honored to have such a shining star in the community involved in their premiere event. 

Fine food and wine, live music, and a day of leisure and luxury at beautiful Bacara Resort & Spa…can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternon?
