About the Rally 4 Kids
The United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara County presents Rally4Kids, a one-of-a-kind event that combines a scenic drive on California’s finest roads, entertaining checkpoint challenges, and a spectacular Gala. Serving as the organization’s largest annual fundraiser, Rally4Kids offers a chance to connect with new faces all while supporting a noble cause.
The excitement kicks off on the evening of April 12th, 2024, with an exclusive cocktail party for driver/navigator teams and sponsors at a secret downtown Santa Barbara location. This gathering provides a preview of the Rally4Kids experience, allowing attendees to network with fellow participants and sponsors amid the backdrop of a beautiful private garage.
On April 13th, the competition begins as teams embark on a secret route, encountering whimsical checkpoints with unique challenges. Earning points along the way, teams vie for the title of 2024 “Road Scholars” Champions and the prestigious traveling trophy. The event concludes just in time for participants to return home, freshen up, and prepare for the evening awards Gala.
Taking place on the same evening at the Polo Grounds, the Gala serves as a festive celebration of the day’s events. Guests are treated to a lively evening featuring a cocktail party with exotic cars, specialty drinks, Rosé, Champagne, delectable bites, and a red carpet entrance with entertainment. The exclusive display of the 60+ rally-completed cars provides an opportunity to share experiences and make new connections. The night continues with a gourmet dinner, live auction, and concludes with dancing. Each team receives four tickets to the Gala, with a festive cocktail attire dress code.
For those not participating in the rally, Gala tickets are available, as well as opportunities to purchase tables for entertaining friends or clients. Don’t miss out on this extraordinary event that blends adventure, camaraderie, and philanthropy.
