Santa Barbara Equine Evac Holding Barbecue Fundraiser Oct. 16

Auction items wanted in benefit for horses, large animals in need

The Santa Barbara Equine Assistance & Evacuation Team will be holding its second annual barbecue and fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 16 at the Carriage and Western Art Museum of Santa Barbara, 129 Castillo St. The event is a benefit to support the equine community and individuals in need of assistance or evacuation in times of natural and other types of disasters involving horses and other large animals.

Santa Barbara Equine Assistance & Evac is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that assists all Santa Barbara County emergency responding agencies and large animal owners in the evacuation, temporary care and sheltering of large animals in time of fire, flood, earthquake and other disasters or accidents. Equine Evac also provides education and demonstrations for many local public events, agencies and organizations.

The organization is asking for the community’s support by pledging a donation to the barbecue and fundraiser. Item(s) donated to the auction will directly benefit the community of Santa Barbara and are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Monetary donations are gladly accepted, as well. Deadline for donations is Oct. 1.

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!
