Hiking for a Cause on the Legendary Camino de Santiago: May 18 - 28, 2015
We are taking reservations now for the 10th Annual Summit for Danny Destination Climb on the legendary trail of Camino de Santiago. For over one thousand years, the Camino de Santiago, or the Way of St. James, has attracted countless spiritual and adventure-seeking pilgrims alike. The historic town and cathedral of Santiago de Compostela—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—houses the remains of the Apostle James, said to have brought Christianity to Spain.
During the Middle Ages, traveling over the mighty Pyrenees from all over Europe to see such a powerful relic became more than just a spiritual journey; for many, it was the quest of a lifetime. While Santiago de Compostela still draws the faithful today, the stunning trail system leading to it also entices hikers to experience the exhilaration of trekking through two countries, varied terrain, and a millennium’s worth of legends. We hope you will join us for the experience of a lifetime, while raising funds to support the Daniel Bryant Youth and Family Center.
Join Us for the 4th Annual Gratitude Luncheon:
Celebrating the Mentors in Your Life
Thursday, February 19
The Gratitude Luncheon is the primary fundraising source for the Mentor Program and a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the mentors in our lives. This year's luncheon will be held on Thursday, February 19th from 11:30am to 1:30pm in the La Pacifica Ballroom of The Biltmore Four Seasons Resort.
This year's Gratitude Luncheon is led by Founder and Honorary Chair Anne Smith Towbes along with Co-Chairs Marybeth Carty and John Daly. The event will feature Chris Gocong, former NFL linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns. Chris is familiar with some of the difficulties our mentees face and will share his inspiring story of overcoming the challenges of his own youth and the mentors who helped him along the way.
We are also excited to honor long-time mentor and Founding Director of Beyond Tolerance, Adele Rosen, with our annual Penny Jenkins Mentor Champion Award. Adele has been an outstanding mentor with our program for over 7 years and is a tireless advocate for youth and the Santa Barbara community.

Join Us for the 2015 Amethyst Ball
Saturday, April 11, 2015 • Bacara Resort & Spa
The 2015 Amethyst Ball will be a memorable evening of 1960's British Invasion music by the incomparable Herman's Hermits, starring Peter Noone and special guests! This will be an Amethyst Ball like no other, and we are excited to share the magic of this event with you. Don a tuxedo or your best 60's attire and pose at the step and repeat, sip a Pimms Cup on the terrace as you peruse our beautifully merchandised silent auction or join friends in one of several Pucci-inspired outdoor living rooms whilst enjoying a mocktail under the stars. Once inside the stunningly designed Ballroom, join us for an exquisite dinner and a brief live auction and program, followed by a phenomenal performance, as only Peter Noone can deliver. Put on your dancing shoes, as you will not be able to stay in your seat for this amazing show. We encourage you to buy tables and sponsorships early, as this event will sell out.
The Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse was established in 1949 by a small group of Santa Barbara citizens and has grown into the largest organization in the county for the prevention and treatment of alcohol and drug abuse, serving over 12,000 youth and adults over its many years! The Amethyst Ball is CADA's premier fundraising event.
