Barbara Burgess has been selected to co-chair the Fiesta Finale.  The annual event will be held at the Courthouse on Sunday, August 8th, and is produced by the John E. Profant Foundation For The Arts, a non-profit organization assisting artists of all ages in Santa Barbara.

Ms. Burgess has been very active in the community serving many organizations including the Marymount School Board, the St. Vincents School Board, The Art affiliates of UCSB, National Charity League, Junior League of Santa Barbara, and as Past President of the Lobero Theatre Foundation.  She is currently an Interior Designer for her own company.

The Fiesta Finale is the final event of Fiesta, and the Gala provides scholarships to artists of all ages in art, dance, literature, music, and theater.  Fans created by local artists are displayed in a silent auction and the dinner party is followed by dancing and then a performance in the Sunken Garden.
