On May 13, Matt Adams and Andy Penso from Mission Wealth attended the 18th Annual Mission Creek Gala, hosted by the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. The extremely successful evening, held at the Mission Canyon campus and Sea Center, was kicked off by the Beauty and the Beast raffle followed by an elegant dinner in the Fleischmann Auditorium. The evening followed with entertainment, a short program, and the opportunity to support nature and science programming for schoolchildren.

Initiated in 2000, the annual Mission Creek Gala is a festive evening to celebrate the work of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and generate support for its scientific and educational mission of inspiring a passion for the natural world. The Gala sustains the Museum’s outstanding education program which touches the lives of 20,000 school children each year through school tours, classes, storytelling, camps, the Nature Collection lending library, and outreach at the Mission Canyon campus and Sea Center.

Mission Wealth is a proud supporter of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, and all that it contributes to the betterment of environmental awareness and education in the Santa Barbara community. To learn more about the Museum’s mission, visit sbnature.org.
