Earl Warren Antique Show benefits children and families in the community
SANTA BARBARA, Calif .– A popular fall tradition kicked off Friday at the Earl Warren Showgrounds.
It is the CALM antiques fair which benefits the agency “Child Abuse Listening Mediation” in Santa Barbara.
The popular shopping event is home to a treasure trove of artwork, vintage clothing, jewelry, furniture and more.
Organizers call it “the West Coast’s most exciting antique and vintage roadshow.”
“I think this is one of the most important things we can invest our money in,” said Jodi Miles, professor of art history at Santa Barbara City College. “As a lifelong educator, investing in the protection and well-being of children is essential for every society. “
The three-day event is a win-win for the community. The profits benefit thousands of children and families each year throughout Santa Barbara County, and those who shop find real treasures at bargain prices.
The antiques show event runs until Sunday.
Earlier this month, CALM hosted its annual CALM at Heart fundraising event in Montecito, which raised more than $ 315,000 for vulnerable children and families in the area.
Over 250 supporters attended this fundraising event.
