Come together with the Funk Zone neighborhood for a day to aid others in need of disaster relief on Saturday, February 10, from 11 a.m.–3 p.m. The Santa Barbara Wine Collective and sister businesses, The Lark, Lucky Penny, Les Marchands and Helena Avenue Bakery join together to present Makers’ Market, a collection of small, local businesses and artisans impacted by the devastation of Santa Barbara County’s recent wildfire and mudslide disasters.
Makers’ Market provides an opportunity for these businesses to sell their wares to the public and recover from the losses they have endured over the past two months. Delicious local food and drink is available during the event, as well as a day-long raffle, with items donated by local vendors, and live music from the Doublewide Kings.
Ten percent of all Makers’ Market sales and 100% of the raffle proceeds are going to Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries worldwide. Direct Relief strives to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies, extending to floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, and all other humanitarian crises. Ranked by Forbes as among the Top Ten U.S. Charities of 2017, Direct Relief is matching dollar for dollar, everything raised on Saturday to support the cause.
