Ever since CALM’s founder, Claire Miles, began her vital work to prevent child abuse in Santa Barbara back in 1969, the CALM Auxiliary has played an instrumental role in helping sustain the great legacy of CALM. The Auxiliary raises additional financial support and community awareness through projects and events, allowing the organization to grow and continue to serve the children and families that need it the most.
The CALM Auxiliary has evolved into an incredible group of women, working collectively to continue this support for CALM. Some of the founding members of the Auxiliary remain very active. Today, the Auxiliary hosts the Celebrity Authors’ Luncheon, and the CALM Antique Shows, raising financial support for CALM each year to continue the mission Claire Miles set out to achieve over 40 years ago.
Each year the CALM Auxiliary hosts the Celebrity Authors’ Luncheon to raise vital funds to support the work of CALM.
