Cancer Center Hosting Reception to Honor Ireland Family

The Friday event also will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Saturday's Barbara Ireland Walk for the Cure

In recognition of Barbara Ireland and the Ireland family’s contributions to advancements in breast cancer detection and treatment, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara is hosting a special event from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Cancer Center courtyard, 540 W. Pueblo St.

Held the evening before this year’s Barbara Ireland Walk for the Cure of Breast Cancer, the event will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the walk, which benefits clinical breast cancer research at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara.

The reception will include hors d’oeuvres provided by Elements Restaurant & Bar, wine and beer tasting from local wineries and breweries, and live music by local musician Rusty Lindsey. There will also be silent and live auctions with a variety of items, including a timeshare at the location of the recipient’s choice and several restaurant, spa and activity gift packages.

Tickets to the reception begin at $50, and RSVP is required. Sponsorship levels are available for those who would like to support a breast cancer patient’s participation in a clinical trial at the Cancer Center.

All proceeds from the reception as well as the walk on Saturday will support cutting-edge breast cancer clinical research at the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara. Currently, the Cancer Center’s clinical research program is recruiting patients for 10 breast cancer trials and continues to collect data in more than 30 trials. To date, the program has enrolled more than 200 patients in the community.

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!
