72nd Man and Woman of the Year

The Santa Barbara Foundation and Noozhawk will sponsor the 72nd Annual Man & Woman of the Year Award, with support from Montecito Bank & Trust. While there are many in Santa Barbara County who give generously of their time and talent to causes, this award is given to two who highlight the spirit of volunteerism and who have made significant and positive impacts on our community through their volunteer efforts. This honor is one of our city's most prestigious awards.


2012 Man and Woman of the Year, Bill Cirone and Anne Smith Towbes.

Santa Barbara is well known for its special and powerful connectivity that comes from community engagement, wherever one chooses to get involved. It is not just the subject matter that counts, but also the energy, the ingenuity, the commitment, and the compassion one brings.




The names of the 2013 Man and Woman of the Year will be announced on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at a luncheon at the Four Seasons Biltmore.
