Family fun and community spirit come together in support of a worthy charitable cause at Earl Warren Showgrounds, 101 fwy and Las Positas offramp in Santa Barbara.

Hundreds of painstakingly and lovingly built show vehicles are gathering from throughout California and neighboring states in support of Seafaring Opportunities For Those In Need (SOFTIN), Inc., a genuine (501c3) nonprofit providing at-sea education and skill-building experiences for disabled, impaired, victims of abuse, frail elderly and youths-at-risk. All proceeds fund SOFTIN programs.

Visitors to the show will ogle and admire "cherry" cars, (classics, hot rods, lowriders), trucks and bicycles, listen and dance to Redfish classic rock band, listen to popular DJs mixing music and announcements, visit vendor booths filled with goodies and services, peruse and bid on fun and valuable donated items, try for raffle prizes, and find fun things for kids to do:. All to support SOFTIN's programs benefitting special-needs people.

Using the healing powers of the sea and emotional excitement of interaction with critters of the sea, SOFTIN's educational curriculum teaches special-needs people and youths-at-risk about the waterfront, types of vessels, jobs on the water, principles of ethical angling, ocean conservation, marine debris prevention, water quality management.

Come support a worthy charity and have a great time. Tickets are $10. Sponsored by Toyota of Santa Barbara, Steve Nuttall Trucking Redfish Classic Rock Band, Cathy's Daycare. For more information, contact Capt. Tiffany Vague: or (805)574-9388.
