71st Man and Woman of the Year

"The ultimate expression of generosity is not in giving
of what you have, but in giving of who you are."


The Santa Barbara Foundation, KDB 93.7 FM classic radio, and Noozhawk will sponsor the 71st 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.


2011 Woman and Man of the Year, Patricia MacFarlane and Ken Saxon.

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 2012 Man and Woman of the Year will be announced on Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at a luncheon at the Four Seasons Biltmore. Attendees will celebrate those who enrich our lives by donating their time and talent, making significant and positive impact on the Santa Barbara community. Unfortunately, no more tickets can be purchased as the luncheon is sold out.
