Eat Your Heart Out, Santa Barbara to Help Family in Need

The event is a benefit for a local family: Rudy Carlos and his four daughters. Carlos has leukemia and the family lost their home and van earlier this month. They’re getting back up on their feet but the benefit is being organized to get them more support.

You do not have to donate money or time. All you have to do is go out to eat. It’s that simple. There are terrific restaurants in town that want to help with this event. And, they’ve been told that Santa Barbara is NOT GOING TO EAT AT HOME on March 3. So, help keep this promise. If you go out to eat at one of the participating restaurants, they will donate 20 percent of the proceeds for those three hours to the family’s fund at Santa Barbara Bank & Trust.

Participating restaurants include:

» Cody’s Cafe, 4898 Hollister Ave., 805.683.5141

» Fresco Café, 3987-B State St., 805.967.6037

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!
