Local Women Raise $32,000 at Leukemia Fundraiser

The efforts of three Santa Barbara residents benefit a Santa Ynez patient and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Santa Barbara residents Ashley Alleman, Jen Goebel and Lauren Stewart raised $32,000 at their “Country with a Cause” fundraiser Aug. 1.

A portion of the proceeds benefited Santa Ynez patient Beka Malloy, who was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia in January, and a portion was donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for research.

The event was held at the Barrack Family Ranch and included a private polo exhibition match, a barbecue and several auction items. Funds were raised by ticket sales, a live and silent auction, and through donations.

In Santa Barbara, Team in Training provides personalized coaching, group training and support to people interested in participating in marathons and half-marathons. In return, participants raise funds that go directly to LLS, the world’s largest voluntary health organization.

Alleman and Goebel are participating with Team In Training in the Nike Women’s Marathon on Oct. 18, and Stewart is a participant in the Long Beach International Marathon on Oct. 11.

A free Team In Training Honored Teammate BBQ is planned for Aug. 22 at Rocky Nook Park in Santa Barbara.

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!
