Altrusa International Inc. of Santa Maria recently hosted the 19th Annual Holiday Extravaganza at the Elks Lodge in Santa Maria.

Our club wishes to thank all of our tree sponsors for their support in donating such fabulous trees to raffle off to our dinner guests.

Fifty-seven beautifully decorated Christmas trees were displayed for raffle. Our tree sponsors continue to out-do themselves each year, with decorations and gifts ever-more extravagant.

Our sponsors include individuals, businesses, charitable organizations, clubs and merchants.

Local youth organizations volunteer their time to aid in the success of our annual fund-raiser. Thank you to Pioneer Valley High School Key Club and the Santa Maria Probation Department for their assistance each year. A huge thank-you to our Altrusa members who donate countless hours all year to make this event such a success.

Since our fund-raiser began in 1990, Altrusa International Inc.

of Santa Maria has raised over $333,000 to support our community’s needs.
