The American Girl Fashion Show is a fun-filled afternoon for girls and their families, friends and favorite dolls. This engaging program promotes literacy for young girls while showcasing historical and contemporary fashions.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Junior League of Santa Barbara and its efforts to promote youth literacy throughout Santa Barbara County.

The fashion show will feature more than 100 local girls and matching dolls as they present fashions by American Girl. Each American Girl doll is a unique character with her own look, fashion and story. Girls can learn more about the dolls and their characters through reading about their adventures.

The historical dolls have stories set during important times in America’s past. The contemporary dolls have stories that relate to issues girls are dealing with today. Both are targeted at showing girls that they can do great things if they believe in themselves.

This year’s American Girl Fashion Show promises to “wow” you like never before. You’ll hear about the 2012 American Girl of the Year, McKenna Brooks, and her adventures as a student and gymnast. Audiences will have the opportunity to see clothing from daywear to sleepwear to special occasion.

Guests can come early to spend time in the American Girl Fashion Show Marketplace, where you will be able to buy merchandise (including fashion show souvenirs for girls and dolls), books and raffle tickets for some fabulous prizes. Girls will have the opportunity to have their doll’s hair styled and have their photo taken with their doll.

The event will also include music, refreshments, party favors and door prizes. Tickets are $35 per person or $50 for premium seating. Tickets are available now by clicking here or calling the Junior League of Santa Barbara at 805.963.2704.

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!
