Rally 4 Kids 2024
The Rally4Kids has entered its eighth year and evolved into one of the United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara’s primary fundraisers. The proceeds garnered from this annual event have played a pivotal role in acquiring vans for transporting children from schools and shelters, establishing new club locations to reach underprivileged youth, and ensuring that these kids receive at least one nourishing meal each day.
This event was conceived as an innovative means of generating both funds and awareness for the clubs. While automotive enthusiasts relish the exceptional roads and exhilarating drives, the rally is designed to engage anyone seeking a novel and adventurous approach to supporting children in need.
The money raised from the Rally 4 Kids events benefit kids all over the county from Lompoc, Solvang, Buellton, Goleta, Santa Barbara, Carpinteria and Camp Whittier.
The Clubs give many kids a place to go after school when their parents are working. They can play with other kids, get help with their homework or just have some down time. Many of the kids say the United Boys and Girls Clubs are their home away from home.
“When I think of ‘Rally 4 Kids’ one word comes to mind, impact! This event has helped the United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County to fulfill our mission year after year. Our organizational mission is: ‘To enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.'”
– Michael Baker, CEO United Boys and Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County
