Bill Cirone Honored at Santa Barbara Rescue Mission Benefit

Dos Pueblos Ranch fundraiser collects $300,000 for rescue mission's programs

For the ninth year, Gerd Jordano served as emcee at Saturday’s annual fundraiser for the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission.

The festivities were held at Rancho Dos Pueblos, where Santa Barbara County schools Superintendent Bill Cirone was honored for his work on the boards of the Hazelden Foundation, the Santa Barbara Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and the Santa Barbara Fighting Back Task Force.

The Dixie Daddies performed Dixieland music for the “Take Me Out to the Bayou” event. Southern barbecue presented by Lorraine Lim Catering.

A silent auction helped raise some $300,000 to help the homeless and recovering addicts at the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, 535 E. Yanonali St. and 24 W. Arrellaga St. For 45 years, the rescue mission has helped hundreds of men and women turn their lives around from drug or alcohol and re-entering society as sober, productive members of their communities.

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!
