The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Benevolent Posse will hold its North County fundraiser from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday at Mendenhall’s Museum of Gasoline Pumps and Petroliana on Zaca Street in Buellton.
The event is expected to include a barbecue dinner, wine and drinks, music and a live auction featuring a day of golf and lunch for four at Clint Eastwood’s Tehama Golf Club in Monterey and a SWAT team demonstration training session for six.
Tickets are $60 per person. Call 966-2028 or visit www.sbsheriffsposse.com to buy tickets, donate or request sponsorship information.
Proceeds will support the DARE and Making it Real programs for elementary and middle school students. Both programs of instructing young people on decision-making are now funded entirely by private and nonprofit-group funding because of county budget cuts.
DARE — which stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education — is meant to give fifth-graders information and skills to live drug- and violence-free lives.
Making It Real, focused on seventh-graders in the Santa Ynez Valley and North County, brings together schools, parents and law enforcement to provide youth with tools, resources and experiences that provide life skills for success and safely.
