The John Corbett Band will headline a benefit concert for the Santa Barbara County Search & Rescue team from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at the Figueroa Mountain Brewery, 45 Industrial Way in Buellton, with 100 percent of ticket sales going to SBCSAR.

It will be an outdoor concert, and doors will open at 4 p.m.

John Corbett (Sex and the City, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Northern Exposure), a Santa Ynez Valley resident, and his band are known for country western and country rock music.

SBCSAR is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that operates almost entirely with private donations; only vehicle fuel and maintenance are paid for with public funds.

Private donations from organizations such as the Orfalea and Wood Claeyssens foundations fund the team’s expenses, such as vehicles and rescue equipment.

Each of the team’s 38 volunteers pays for his or her own rescue gear, costing up to $2,000.

The concert is open to the public. Tickets are $35 in advance or $40 at the door, and may be purchased online through SBCSAR’s PayPal account by clicking here.

— Valerie Walston is a public information officer for Santa Barbara County Search & Rescue.

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!
