National Charity League Honors Its Class of 2011 at Annual Senior Presents

22 seniors collectively provided nearly 5,000 hours of community service over last six years

National Charity League of Santa Barbara’s “Ticktocker” Class of 2011 was honored Saturday at the group’s annual Senior Presents. The event featured 22 young women who have spent the last six years contributing to the mother-daughter volunteer organization.

The girls have collectively served 4,906 volunteer hours at local philanthropies, including Art from Scrap, Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter (BUNS), Child Abuse Listening & Mediation (CALM), Children’s Creative Project, Direct Relief International, Dream Foundation, Hearts Adaptive Riding Center, McKinley School, Safety Town, Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, Santa Barbara Council for Alcohol & Drug Abuse, Santa Barbara Museum of Art & Ridley-Tree Education Center, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Santa Barbara Public Library, Santa Barbara Special Olympics, Santa Barbara Zoo, Storyteller Children’s Center and Unity Shoppe.

Hundreds of National Charity Leaguers, family and friends of the Class of 2011 packed the ballroom at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort for the presentation. Arianna Margot Rapley Janoff earned the Senior Service Award by working the most individual volunteer hours. In her speech, Rapley Janoff recounted how she discovered her passion for arts education through her NCL experience volunteering at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s ArtVenture Camps at the Ridley-Tree Education Center.

The crowd was treated to a spirited Phantom of the Opera-themed show featuring the senior and junior Ticktockers. Then each senior was honored in a presentation that noted the personal highlights of her six years of community service, especially the hours the girls worked alongside their mothers. The evening was capped off with an heartwarming father-daughter dance.

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!
