In honor of AWC-SB’s new partnership with Antioch University Santa Barbara and to welcome new AWC-SB members, AWC-SB Membership Director Rachil Willig arranged a gathering on the rooftop at Antioch August 28. The bustling reception was made possible by businesses and friends who supplied the refreshments and entertainment for the night. Thank you to Aparna Khanolkar of themistressofspice.com for catering the event, Bonnie Hope of musicbybonnie.com for providing music, Mandana Mirabrishami, a Santa Barbara nutrition educator, for baked delicious wholesome cookies, and Sarah Sugich from Marquee Events for donating two cases of wine. Photos of the event are courtesy of r.s.thurston photography. Also, a special thank you to the board members and staff at Antioch who helped us organize the event. The new membership celebration and partnership with Antioch would not have been such a success without the assistance of these exceptional contributors, our eager new members, and our own AWC-SB chairs and members.
