Jeff Lockwood will serve as committee chairman for the Adopt-a-Vine program benefiting the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County at Bella Cavalli Farm & Vineyard in Santa Ynez. The event, held in conjunction with Bella Cavalli’s Harvest Party, will be at 5 p.m. Oct. 10.

“The Adopt-a-Vine benefit program matches donors’ names (placed on a plaque) to the specific vine they have adopted. Donors also will receive adoption papers,” said Lockwood, who owns the 44-acre Bella Cavalli Farm & Vineyard. “Adoption fees vary from $50 to $2,500.”

Long active in philanthropy, Lockwood has been a land developer for 30 years. Bella Cavalli includes an equestrian center with 60 horses and a thoroughbred race track surrounding the vineyard. This year’s Adopt-a-Vine event marks the sixth year Lockwood has been fundraising for the Foodbank.

With the help of other committee members — Diane Durst of Santa Barbara Foodbank, Joanne Lockwood and Dr. Jack Lockwood — the evening’s festivities include a small horse show, dinner and wine, music and dancing.

Admission to the Harvest Party is $35; adoption fees are extra. For more information, click here or call Lockwood at 805.688.7108.

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!
