Kick Ash Bash was a spectacular event thrown for over 4,000 guests in honor of our heroic First Responders, following the devastating debris flow that struck our community on January 8, 2018. A new organization, “One805” was created, hosting the largest non-profit event in Santa Barbara History. Thanks to the efforts of our community, over $2 million was raised to purchase essential equipment, provide counseling to First Responders, and directly support victims of this terrible tragedy.
The Kick Ash Bash was full of entertainment for our First Responders, their families and those who came to support our cause. An incredible ten-hour concert full of love and support was the biggest attraction. The concert included both musicians and celebrities such as; Alan Parsons, Katy Perry, Kenny Loggins, David Crosby, Robbie Krieger of The Doors, David Foster, Steve Vai, Dennis Miller, Dishwalla, Richard Marx, Wilson Phillips, Katherine McPhee, and an appearance from Ellen DeGeneres.
