The annual fundraising event for the SBCC Athletics Program, which offers 17 sports for men and women, will be held at the La Cumbre Country Club.

Honorees are selected based on their service to SBCC.

“Ron is an outstanding selection,” SBCC Superintendent/President Dr. Andreea Serban said. “Cottage and SBCC have a true community partnership by working closely together to offer an exemplary nursing program.”

Cottage provides critical faculty funding for classroom instruction at SBCC and then offers its hospital settings for the nursing students to practice their skills under the guidance of highly qualified staff.

This year’s Golf Classic also will commemorate SBCC’s 100th anniversary of its founding and of service to the community.

The fundraiser for Vaquero athletics will be a four-person scramble with awards in three flights, followed by a silent auction and raffle. Special gifts and prizes will be awarded in various contests, including a putt for $50,000.

Registration will begin at 9:30 a.m. March 15, with a shotgun start at 11 a.m. The cost is $1,000 per foursome and $1,050 after March 1.

Major tournament sponsors include the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, Montecito Bank & Trust, MarBorg Industries, Pacifica Suites, Lloyd Civil and Sports Engineering, the Volentine Family Foundation and Student Insurance.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
