New Beginnings’ Educational Luncheon Series

New Beginnings hosts quarterly educational luncheons at the Tydes Restaurant at the Coral Casino that feature in-depth discussions regarding the social and human service issues most critical in our community. Our purpose is to strengthen our relationships with our supporters, provide educational opportunities to community members, and attract new donors to our work. If you are interested in attending a particular luncheon or know someone that is, please contact our Development Manager, Michael Berton, at (805) 963-7777 x112 or at mberton@sbnbcc.org.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved our first two luncheons of the year online. We are hoping that we will be able to offer the last two luncheons of the year at the Coral Casino and are following health guidelines closely. If we are unable to hold these luncheons in-person, we will hold the luncheons online instead.

We are still very much in need of sponsorships for both our Educational Luncheon Series and our Annual Fundraiser because they provide us with unrestricted income for general operating support. For more details about sponsorship benefits, please view the information at the bottom of this page. Thank you to our current sponsors:
