Special Events

There are many exciting opportunities for you to support our mission and join the philanthropic community.

Angels Among Us

Every year, VNA Health hosts our annual Angels Among Us remembrance services in December – one in Buellton and two in Santa Barbara. Angels Among Us is a special offering over the holidays to honor and remember those who live in our memories. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic, our 2020 Angels Among Us service became a virtual service including music, heartwarming reflections, and an opportunity to remember loved ones at home and online in our Virtual Candlelight Tribute. During the Holidays, the need for bereavement support is greatest, as memories and traditions can bring up grief and loss. We invite you join us online at www.vna.health/2020angelsamongus


PHorum is Santa Barbara’s annual healthcare symposium where national, regional and local health care leaders share and discuss relevant issues that impact our community. With the onset of the COVID-19 Pandemic, this year’s PHorum went online and we continued our conversation with Dr. Kerr on how end-of-life experiences often provide comfort and meaning as well as insight into the life led as we approach death.

19th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon

Out of concern for the well-being and health of our community we transitioned our annual Mother's Day Luncheon event into a virtual celebration for our 2020 Honored Mother Sue Birch, and Remembered Mother Adelle Chris Dyer. It is also an opportunity to recognize all mothers and caregivers! See Virtual Event and read more »

15th Annual Santa Barbara Yacht Club Charity Regatta

Each year, the Santa Barbara Yacht Club (SBYC) and VNA Health come together to race and raise funds to support VNA Health's mission of caring with compassion and integrity. While there was no physical gathering this year due to COVID-19, SBYC still raced their boats to raise more than $102,000 for VNA Health at the 16th Annual SBYC Charity Regatta.
