Horsing Around

Participants of the annual United Way fund raising campaign channeled the spirit of the Kentucky Derby for the lunchtime "horse race"
Wednesday, February 25, 2015 - 14:30
Santa Barbara, CA

It was a perfect day at the races for participants of the 2015 United Way fundraising campaign. With their colleagues cheering them on, jockeys from departments across the UC Santa Barbara campus donned their best racing silks and mounted their trusty hobby horses for a little friendly lunchtime competition.
The event, which also featured a derby hat contest, is part of the 2015 United Way campaign. This year’s campus goal is to increase the number of donors to 500 and to raise $130,000 for people in need.

All United Way donations made by UCSB employees remain in Santa Barbara County unless designated for use outside the area. A significant amount of the money raised stays within the UCSB community through the Isla Vista connection that supports the UCSB Child Care Center and Isla Vista Youth Projects.
