As the Presenting Sponsor of the 2016 Santa Barbara Triathlon, Montecito Bank & Trust was given the difficult choice of selecting one local nonprofit to receive all of the donations raised by Triathlon athletes. We narrowed the choice to five local non-profits and asked the public to help us by voting for their favorite. We received over 3,000 votes from the local community!

After all the votes were tallied, Special Olympics Santa Barbara emerged as the 2016 Nonprofit Beneficiary of the Santa Barbara Triathlon! Congratulations! Thank you to everyone who voted and supported these hard-working nonprofit organizations.
