“Passion for Independence” 1st annual fundraiser hosted by the Independent Living Resource Center

October 19 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Independent Living Resource Center hosts its first fundraising event in support of promoting independent living and full access for individuals with disabilities through advocacy, education, and action in our communities.

ILRC’s “Passion for Independence”, will be raising money to address the unmet needs of local individuals with disabilities on a quest to live their best lives. ILRC provides resources, assistance, and targeted programs to help with all the details of independence such as; affordable/accessible housing, benefits, transportation, personal assistance, assistive technology, and true peer support.

The event starts at 5:00 PM, with a cocktail hour followed by dinner and fundraising activities to raise money for the addition of needed ILRC services. The Emcee for the evening is Santa Barbara Foundation’s 2018 Man of the Year, Ernesto Paredes, Executive Director of Easy Lift.

Event participation includes purchasing individual tickets for the evening or becoming a sponsor. The benefits of becoming a sponsor may include preferred seating, recognition from the podium, logo and/or name on ILRC’s Passion for Independence event webpage, recognition on ILRC’s media, printed material, and more.

Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are now available for the event.

“After 42 years, this is our first time hosting a fundraiser! We are so excited to expand existing and create new relationships to benefit individuals with disabilities in our area. ILRC is ready to move from our community’s best-kept secret to the place individuals with disabilities go to seek the equity and independence they deserve!”
