PTA Hosting ‘Moonlight Over Monroe’ Benefit Auction

Live and silent auctions at the April 28 event will raise funds for school programs

The Monroe Elementary School PTA will be hosting “Moonlight Over Monroe,” a live and silent auction, on Saturday, April 28 at the Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church Event Center, 1205 San Antonio Creek Road in Santa Barbara.

“The auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year, which raises the much-needed funds to bring programs to our school that wouldn’t otherwise be available — science, P.E., computers, art, assemblies, field trips and much more,” said Alison Jordan, PTA president.

There will be both a silent and live auction, as well as live music by Spencer the Gardener, food and drinks, and special guest Marty Blum.

“This festive event is a happy break from traditional school fundraising — it allows parents and community members to get out and have fun while raising funds for the school and bringing home some great deals,” auction committee member Rechelle Ringer said. “We keep our entrance fee low, relying on our community partners to help cover the costs of the event.”

Tickets for the event can be purchased at the Monroe Elementary School office, 431 Flora Vista in Santa Barbara, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Community members interested in purchasing tickets can call the office at 805.966.7023. The cost of the ticket is $20 per person and includes a complimentary beverage, hors d’œuvres, and an evening of music and dancing.

This year’s partners include Drs. Tem and Joanne Gronquist, Rich Graphics, Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, Fastrack Bicycles, Prober Land Surveying, Kawasaki of Santa Barbara, Ibiza Hair Design, Landscapes by Davids, American Riviera Bank, Mike Richardson Realty and MarBorg Industries.

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!
