Ice in Paradise Coming to Santa Barbara County

The Ice in Paradise project is just months away from becoming a cold, hard, skate-able reality. From skating experiences to community gatherings, the venue has been designed to benefit the entire community. The Greater Santa Barbara Ice Skating Association, the nonprofit spearheading the project, has raised close to $8 million in donations and pledges so far. The Santa Barbara Foundation first provided funding to the association in 2006, and together with its donor partners, has contributed $295,000 to date. Full story
