Celebrate Providence


Celebrate Providence! is our fundraising auction and dinner. This year’s event, “A Seaside Soiree,” will be hosted at the Rosewood Miramar Beach Resort on Friday, March 15, 2019. We will be one of the very first local organizations using this beautiful venue following its grand re-opening.

We are excited for the opportunity to celebrate the heritage of our school and God’s provision for Christian education in Santa Barbara. We are grateful to Colette Nottage Crafton and Melissa Kuykendall for co-chairing this event, along with the committee members listed at the right.

Cocktail Hour and Silent Auction – 5:30 pm—7:00 pm

“A Seaside Soiree” will begin on the Miramar’s Great Lawn overlooking the exquisite property and the Pacific Ocean. During cocktail hour, guests will be serenaded by the homegrown talent of Providence faculty musicians as they peruse and bid on a fabulous array of silent auction items and “Providence Socials”—parties and activities donated by families, local businesses, and organizations.D

Dinner, Program, and Live Auction – 7:00 pm—9:00 pm

A dinner program will be held in the Chandelier Ballroom, where guests seated beneath stunning Baccarat chandeliers will be delighted by the ambiance as they enjoy a lovely, locally inspired meal. The evening’s program will include music and film elements that tell the story and heritage of our beloved school. To close out the evening, guests will enjoy an animated live auction and the drawing for the winner of the Samsung 55″ “The Frame” Premium 4K UHD TV raffle prize.

To purchase raffle tickets, please contact either school office.

What to Wear

Formal attire is encouraged. For men, we suggest wearing a suit, dinner jacket, or even a tux. Women are encouraged to wear a nice dress or pantsuit, a cocktail dress, or a formal gown (short or long). Even though the Miramar is located near the beach, Hawaiian shirts, shorts, and flip flops could feel out of place in the resort’s elegant rooms. Ladies wearing heels, please bear in mind that the cocktail hour and silent auction are on the lawn. We will provide heel caps for spiked-heel shoes.
