Tournament proceeds will benefit the SBCC Athletic Department in supporting 400 student-athletes and cheerleaders in 17 sports and programs.

This year’s classic includes a four-person scramble; on course contests, special gifts and prizes; silent auction and raffle; and a putt for $50,000.

The entry fee for a foursome is $1,000 and includes lunch, cart, green fees, tee prizes and entry into most contests. Tournament sponsorships range from $1,500 to $6,500.

Jurkowitz has been a longtime supporter of the college in both leadership and philanthropic roles. He has been a member of the SBCC Board of Trustees since 2003 and a member of the Board of Directors for the Foundation for Santa Barbara City College since 1993.

Avid and generous supporters of higher education, the arts and human services, Jurkowtiz and his wife, Irma, have helped numerous causes at SBCC, including the annual Golf Classic.

In 1988, through the Foundation for SBCC, the Jurkowitzes established a special honor program award that provides needed scholarships each year to deserving students with high academic standings. The couple also made possible the restoration of the Studio Theater that the college renamed the Jurkowitz Theatre in their honor.

In addition, Jurkowitz is a very active member of the Santa Barbara community, having served on the boards for numerous nonprofit organizations. A real estate investor and developer, he and his wife have been residents of Santa Barbara for more than 45 years.

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!
