Goleta Valley Community Center Hosting ‘Taste of Fashion’

Saturday's event will benefit the Senior Center and Northside Optimist Club

The Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Ave. in Goleta, will hold its fourth annual fashion show fundraiser, Taste of Fashion, this Saturday, April 9.

It’s the Senior Center’s major fundraiser for the year, and this year it’s partnering with the Northside Optimist Club of Santa Barbara, youth programs. All proceeds will benefit both programs.

The senior center serves a wide variety of senior citizens, many of whom are very low income. It provides programs for all seniors, free of charge, including exercise, parties, dance, art, music and recreation. Every year the center throws an extravagant Mardi Gras Ball at a nominal charge. This fashion show is critical to support these activities.

The Santa Barbara Northside Optimists Club draws its members from all walks of life. It is made up of business owners, engineers, human-resources specialists, writers, computer specialists, educators, public safety personnel and actively retired professionals — all with a common bond to support youth and youth activities in the communities.

The club actively supports the Westside Boys & Girls Club, Dos Pueblos Little League and Challenger Little League teams, local youth essay and oratorical contests, Santa Barbara County Fire Safety Trailer Program, Optimists Youth Home and Childhood Cancer Camp just to name a few. They help the youth help themselves and help create a community that is vibrant and healthy.

Saturday’s festivities include hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants at 11 a.m., a silent auction and raffle from 11 a.m. to noon, a luncheon at noon and the fashion show at 12:30 p.m.

Tickets are $45 at the door.

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!
