Clear out your children’s gently used toys, show them the value of giving back and help support pediatric cancer research at the Fifth Annual Kidz for a Cure toy sale and celebration, hosted by Adams Elementary School, 2701 Las Positas Road in Santa Barbara, from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 12.

Kidz for a Cure was spearheaded in 2008 by then 8-year-old entrepreneur Madison Lewandowski, who wanted to help find a cure for pediatric cancer while showing her young peers the magic of philanthropy.

Support the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara’s Pediatric Oncology Research Fund by selling your children’s gently used, clean, working toys, games, electronics, videos/DVDs and books that they have outgrown or are ready to pass on.

Call the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara by Thursday, May 10 to reserve one of the spaces (first come, first serve!) to sell items. Those who reserve space to sell items will receive a “Thank You” package with goodies from Golf N’ Stuff, Kingston Candy Co. and more. Meet people, sell your items and raise money for pediatric cancer research!

The celebration will include face painting, musical entertainment by the NEWCATS and CutTime, crafts, a bounce house and fantastic silent auction items, like Disneyland Park Hopper tickets.

For more information or to reserve a space, call the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara at 805.898.2116, email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or click here.

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!
