Goleta Valley Beautiful Award Ceremony Sunday at Stow House

Barbecue feast, auction and entertainment highlight a day celebrating community enhancements

Goleta Valley Beautiful will hold its 35th annual Awards Event from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday at the Stow House Garden, 304 N. Los Carneros Road. The event will include an informal outdoor afternoon barbecue, a change from previous formal dinner banquets. The historic garden location is a perfect compliment to GVB’s mission to enhance sustainable public beauty in the Goleta Valley.

Tickets for the event are $25 for GVB members, $30 for nonmembers, $10 for students, and children under 5 are free. Reservations can be made in advance by calling 805.685.7910.

Food will be provided by Woody’s BBQ, and the entertainment by DJ Mell Hueston of Total Music, Berzercus with Erin Rosenthal and Las Fiesteras dancers with the Native Daughters of the Golden West. A silent auction featuring local businesses will open the event.

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!
