This 2-hour cruise can be a wedding or birthday party, an anniversary or holiday celebration – whatever you would love to celebrate with friends – and you will not have to lift a finger! 

(4) “SEPTEMBER MOON” – Painting by Tom de Walt
Oil on canvas, 36"x46" framed
“I first painted Refugio Beach in the early 1980s. Since then I’ve gone back again and again to the cove with the beautiful light. It remains today one of my favorite places to paint. In this painting, “September Moon” I’m standing near the creek mouth looking down the coast to El Capitan.” –Tom de Walt

For celebrated artist Tom de Walt, a love of nature started when he learned to surf
at a young age. From his deep connection with nature, he began painting landscapes and received early recognition for his modernist tonalism.

Take a load off for two! Relax in the back of a limo as you are chauffeured from Santa Barbara to the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills to see Kenny Loggins Live on Saturday, December 2nd! Traffic? No worries…you’re out of the Danger Zone! On the southbound drive you can strum your new Kenny Loggins-signed guitar while you sip champagne with your guest.... Once you arrive, can get Footloose and enjoy the show. Hang out after the last encore to meet & greet Kenny in the theater. When you open your swag bag of KL Merchandise you’ll think to yourself, I’m Alright

We thank all of our generous Sponsors who have already made the HTO 2017 Benefit our most successful ever! We look forward to seeing all of you on October 21!
