Thank you for joining us in supporting our local and worldwide communities.
Thank you for joining us for the much-anticipated return of the Santa Barbara Dolphin Dive!
The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise is deeply grateful for the community’s support and would like to give special thanks to Minno LLC, Arlington Financial Advisors, and all our generous sponsors and donors, dolphin adopters, performers, volunteers, and all who attended which ensured the success of this fundraising event.
The festival, held at the beautiful oceanfront Chase Palm Park, featured a dolphin race, when thousands of rubber dolphins were launched down a 200-foot watercourse. Oscar Zavala’s dolphin was the first to cross the finish line and won the grand prize of $2,500. Additional winners took home cash, gift certificates, and other prizes.
The fun-filled day also featured live music, activities for children, food, wine and beer. Enjoy some of our favorite photos from the event.
We extend extra special thanks to EdHat as our media sponsor and to the Santa Barbara Fire Department Station 5 who oversaw the use of the recycled water and helped water the grass after the event which was almost as fun as the races.
For media coverage of the event, see features by EdHat, KEYT, Santa Barbara Independent, and Santa Barbara News-Press.
Proceeds from the Dolphin Dive supports the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara Sunrise Charitable Foundation for humanitarian and community service projects in Santa Barbara and around the world. If you missed the opportunity to adopt a dolphin and wish to support our club’s impact in our local and worldwide communities, there’s still time to make a donation.
Stay tuned for information about our upcoming online auction in the fall and a date for our 4th annual Dolphin Dive in 2023.
