Dune Coffee has been our favorite coffee in Santa Barbara since they’ve existed. We are SO excited to partner with DUNE Coffee who will be offering FREE coffee for all participants with their race bib during race week. DUNE is a local, women-owned specialty coffee roaster. We believe that the coffee shop is so much more than a business: it can and should be an oasis for our customers and employees: a place that creates joy,
connection, and amazing and fun coffee times..
Members of DUNE have been participating in She.Is.Beautiful for years
and we are excited to share our favorite Santa Barbara coffee with you
Topa Topa Santa Barbara Tap Room is the official location of the SIB post-party. Stay tuned to learn discounts and more sweet deals that you’ll find here after the race. “Topa Topa Brewing Co. was founded in 2015 in Ventura, CA, nestled between the Topa Topa mountains in Ojai and the salty shores of the Pacific. We believe the people should drink great beer! And we love that we get to craft great beer amongst a landscape and community that inspires us.
Topa Topa is upheld by a trifecta of values: quality, craftsmanship, and community spirit. This means we use the freshest ingredients, we work with the most skilled brewers around, and we thrive on uplifting and unifying our community. We get stoked on good surf, a long hike, a tough climb, or a good-old-fashioned day of hard work. And we think these days are made all the better when we’re surrounded by friends with a cold beer in hand.”
At McC’s, we’re out to produce the finest ice creams in the world, in the most responsible and sustainable way possible. In the process, we hope to enrich and enliven the communities in which we live and work, and leave the world just a little bit “sweeter” than we found it.
She.is.beautiful is so excited to share that McConnell’s ice cream is extending an offer of a free scoop to all She.is.beautiful race participants during race week with the proof of their race bib!
Stay tuned to learn more about local Santa Barbara race week giveaways!

A message from Girls Inc.:
At Girls Inc. we work each day to inspire all girls to be STRONG, SMART, and BOLD!
Our mission drives our dedicated staff, volunteers, and coaches to help unlock the potential of every youth who walks through our doors, encouraging all girls to feel safe to express themselves to trusted adults in hands-on, minds-on programs. This is the Girls Inc. Experience.
But what does it mean to turn inspiration into action? It’s one thing to “talk the talk” and say we inspire all girls, but how do we “walk the walk” and deliver on that promise? To answer that, the Girls Inc. Experience can be summed up with three P’s: the People, the Places, and the Programs. This unique combination creates a nurturing and supportive atmosphere for girls to find their own voices, learn to advocate for themselves and for others, and develop their leadership skills that they can take into their communities, schools, and families.
At the heart of the Girls Inc. Experiences are the supportive mentors and facilitators who hold space for all girls to learn to be strong, smart and bold in their own ways. They represent the girls they serve and are often times leaders in their own communities and families. When girls remember their Girls Inc. Experience, they always remember their mentors’ names. Sustained exposure to trusted adults is essential to a girl’s social/academic/emotional development. Our mentors create experiences for girls to follow their curiosity, develop their inherent strengths, and build leadership skills for their futures.
Anyone who walks into our Teen Center or Goleta Valley Center campuses feels welcomed. At ease. Safe. That is not an accident; our physical spaces are intentionally designed to be inclusive. For many girls and teens, Girls Inc. is the only place where they feel physically or emotionally safe. As a result, our girls feel safe and inspired to share their talents and ideas with our staff and their peers. The Girls Inc. Experience begins in a safe pro-girl environment that cultivates creativity and healthy expression without judgment.
Girls Inc. programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of girls today. They are hands-on, minds-on, interesting, and they inspire wonder. More than just another academic-type class outside of schools, the Girls Inc. programs – games, cooking sessions, art projects, STEMinist classes – expose girls to new experiences and ideas and allow them to learn about the world around them.
YOU can invest in HER future today by supporting the Girls Inc. Experience.
