The 2nd Annual Plane Pull was a success! Thanks to Alaska Airlines, all the sponsors and participants, and everyone who came out to support Alpha Resource Center. Team SBA was proud to take home this year’s first place trophy, but the real winner was Alpha Resource Center: over $55,000 was raised to support their important mission.

March is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, and Alpha Resource Center is an important local resource for the Santa Barbara community. Alpha has been empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities for 70 years. Their organization supports families, creates opportunities, and fosters belonging for participants throughout Santa Barbara County. All proceeds from the Plane Pull benefitted this important work, and it was great to see the community come together to support their mission.
