Dear Friends,

Today is the day! Our virtual fundraiser, Setting The Table, begins today.

We are so excited to present a new local chef each day this week for your viewing pleasure. Tonight we welcome Sam Dobrozsi, owner of Fireside Pizza in Walnut Hills, as he demonstrates how to make an authentic pepperoni pizza from scratch. You can view the video at 6 p.m. this evening on our virtual fundraising page , or on Facebook or YouTube !

You may also purchase raffle tickets, make a donation or purchase a hand-crafted bowl donated from Queen City Clay artists - all to benefit services of Santa Maria and help us fight poverty! Just go to !

Join us every night this week for a new video and this Thursday, July 9, 2020 as we draw the raffle prize winners and check in with our friends and supporters! Save this URL to your calendar and prepare to meet with us on Zoom this Thursday at 6 p.m. !

And don't forget this is all about Setting The Table for The Sharing Table , our annual fundraiser being held on September 10, 2020 at 6 p.m. at Rhinegeist Brewery !
