Joseph Gabrielli - The Friendship Paddle 2019

Supporting Mike Kelley Learn More

The Friendship Paddle

On September 15th over 150 paddlers will start at sunrise in Forney's Cove on Santa Cruz Island and paddle the Santa Barbara Channel and land on the beach in front of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club in support of Mike Kelley and his family. 

The Friendship Paddle is an open ocean event organized to provide emotional and financial support to Santa Barbara County Residents fighting a life-threatening illness.

Mike participated in the first Friendship Paddle and has been a major part of this organization ever since.  He has supported many families over the years, and now it's time to support the Kelley family.  I've seen how inspiring this event is, and how powerful it is to witness the community rallying around a family.  Join us as we rally around Mike.
