100 Ukuleles equals ‘Fun in the Sun’

June 28, 2023 - by: Ashly Othic

A much-anticipated summer break has officially begun for most students, but for the @unitedwaysb, that does not mean that learning is put on hold. At the UWSB, the summer session allows for growth and the opportunity to develop new skills. Now is a great time to support and encourage youth music education!

The Bowl’s Outreach ‘Instrument Fund’ recently granted the United Way Santa Barbara 100 Ukuleles to their “Fun in the Sun” summer learning program. The Bowl loves seeing these young future artists smile!

Since 1997, United Way of Santa Barbara County (UWSBC) has provided Fun in the Sun, a collaborative summer learning program for local students and families to support Santa Barbara youth. The program's primary focus is bridging the gap for students identified by local districts and educators as at-risk for summer learning loss.

The Santa Barbara Bowl is dedicated to increasing access to music education and knows that lack of funding for instruments can be a barrier to interested students. The Bowl’s Instrument Fund was created in direct response to the many recurring needs of local schools and music education programs. Instrument Funding is available to repair and purchase instruments, music equipment, and accessories.

Are you an organization that provides performing arts education for youth? Do you need program support? If you are unfamiliar with the Bowl’s Instrument Fund program, now is the time to learn.
