The event’s keynote speaker is Elizabeth Gilbert, author of “Eat, Pray, Love” and “Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear.”
During the virtual program, Hospice of Santa Barbara will present the Partnership Award to Mi Vida, Mi Voz; the Volunteer Award to the Beloved Bear Program; the Medical Award to Dr. Van Do-Reynoso, and the Legacy Award to Gary Simpson, president and owner of the Home Improvement Center.
