Crane Students to Put on Benefit Concert for Make-A-Wish Foundation

Eighth-grade organizers set $5,000 fundraising goal for April 21 event

Crane Country Day School’s eighth-grade class has conceived of, planned and will host a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 21 at the school’s sprawling campus.

This family event is open to the entire community and benefits a worthy cause.

The students chose the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Tri-Counties in hopes of raising $5,000 to grant the wish of a local child who is facing a life-threatening illness.

The musicians performing include Crane’s xylophone and marimba group, Vibes!, the Santa Barbara High School Madrigals, Joel Jamison, Lily and Marley, Bridget Mitchell on harp, the Ukuladies and Chris Keet.

Tickets for adults and students in eighth grade and older are $15; children are free. Email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) to buy tickets.

Even if you can’t come to the concert, you can help by making a donation, or by telling your friends about the event. So bring your blankets and lawn chairs for an afternoon of great music!

Crane Country Day School is located at 1795 San Leandro Lane in Montecito. Parking is available on site.

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!
