Auxiliary Women Present $153,000 Check to CALM

Group donates funds raised from events during the past year

On June 13, the women of the CALM Auxiliary presented the staff of CALM with a check for the funds the group has raised during the past year.

CALM Auxiliary President Dale McCaskey presented a check in the amount of $153,000 to Executive Director Cecilia Rodriguez and board President Bridget Foreman at the Harbor Restaurant.

The majority of the money raised by the CALM Auxiliary comes from the annual Celebrity Authors’ Luncheon, the Antiques & Vintage Shows, along with a few additional fundraising efforts. To date, the CALM Auxiliary has raised $1.1 million for CALM, allowing the organization to continue its mission to prevent and treat child abuse in Santa Barbara County.

The CALM Auxiliary has played an instrumental role in helping sustain the great legacy of CALM in Santa Barbara since 1969. The Auxiliary raises additional financial support and community awareness through projects and events, allowing the organization to grow and continue to serve the children and families that need it most.

The CALM Auxiliary has evolved into an incredible group of women, working collectively to continue this support of CALM.

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!
