A promotion late last year is benefiting the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County.

A check for more than $2,000 will be presented to the organization Thursday night from Santa Barbara Gift Baskets.

The company held a gift basket promotion last December with a portion of the proceeds going to the Food Bank.

Organizers say the Food Bank can purchase $17 worth of food for every $1 donated.
