Boys & Girls Club Volunteer Inspires HUB International Fundraiser

Flip-Flops and Jeans Day raises $1,830 for the Santa Barbara Boys & Girls Club

Ray Seider of Carpinteria has been a volunteer member of the Santa Barbara Boys & Girls Club board of directors for the past 22 years. In recognition of that, fellow employees at HUB International chose the local nonprofit as the sole recipient of the insurance company’s Southern California fundraising effort.

HUB’s “Flip-Flops and Jeans Day” raised funds by co-workers entering a “beauty contest” of whose flip-flops and jeans, in lieu of standard professional attire, were voted the most attractive.

The $5 entry fee per contestant was earmarked for the local United Boys & Girls Clubs, and a total of $1,830 was raised.

Seider, an insurance executive, matched all funds collected by the Southern California HUB offices.

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!
