Beginning at 11 a.m., employees at both properties created an assembly line of sandwich construction that resulted in the team exceeding past their original goal of 4,500 sack lunches with 4,693 lunches made.

Among those who received the fruits of Broughton Hotels’ labor were Los Angeles-based Dream Center, and Santa Barbara charities New House III, Casa Serena, Doctors Without Walls, Casa Esperanza, Transition House, Santa Barbara Rescue Mission and the Santa Barbara Boys and Girls Club.
