Open Alternative School Hosting Homegrown 2 Benefit Party, Auction

Purchase drawing tickets early for a chance to win an Ooty's scooter and other prizes

The Homegrown 2 Benefit Party and Silent Auction for Open Alternative School will rock the house from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, April 14 at La Casa de la Raza. Tickets are $20 adults and $10 for children, and will be available at the door.

Wine and a scrumptious list of catered appetizers and desserts will be served, including stuffed mushrooms, tomato bisque shots and artisan pizza, with luscious salads, hummus and even a chocolate fountain.

Live music includes OAS teacher Sam Adams, Sean McCue, Jesse Rhodes and Childcare Bob’s band, Santa Barbara Flash Mob. Fun for kids will include a Kid’s Dance Party with DJ Adkishin and dance lessons provided by Studio B.

Silent auction treats look fabulous, so come prepared to bid — with plenty of fantastic donations including an autographed episode script by cast members from the hit show Glee, and a helicopter ride over Santa Barbara, plus a scooter donated by Ooty’s Scooters. There are lots of very affordable auction items as well, donated by local families and businesses.

Prize drawing tickets will be $5 each — that’s a chance to win a beautiful scooter for around the price of a gallon of gas! Tickets will be available at the Saturday farmers markets downtown between now and the event, as well as the Santa Barbara High School swap meet.

For more information or to buy drawing tickets, click here for the OAS Homegrown 2 Benefit’s Facebook page or call Open Alternative School at 805.683.3127.

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!
