Savor UCSB at All Gaucho Reunion's 'Taste' Event

The highlight of the All Gaucho Reunion weekend, the Taste of UCSB presented by Montecito Bank & Trust, will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 27 on the Recreation Center lawn at UCSB. Dozens of Gaucho chefs, brewers, caterers and vintners will provide guests with their food and drink, live music will play, and a picnic-themed photo booth will be sure to bring out the festive side in everyone. More than 700 UCSB alumni and friends are expected to attend this year’s event. A silent auction, filled with generously donated gifts and items from the Santa Barbara community, will benefit the Alumni Scholarship Fund, providing financial support to current and future Gauchos.
