Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara will hold its 11th Annual Celebration Luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 1 at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort.

Master of Ceremonies Carina Corral of KSBY will introduce featured speaker Marilyn Tam, whose compelling personal and professional accomplishments are truly an inspiration.

Tam grew up in poverty as a child laborer in China and went on to become an international business leader who worked in executive roles for global companies, including Nike, Reebok and Aveda.

Her story is an inspiring example of what can be achieved when one pursues his or her dreams.

This year’s luncheon will feature the inaugural Strong, Smart, and Bold Awards honoring individuals and organizations that embody the mission of Girls Inc. — “inspiring all girls to be strong, smart and bold.” This year’s honorees are Nancy Failing, Perri Harcourt, Lorraine and Stephanie Wilson, and the employee volunteers of Deckers Outdoor Corp.

Tickets are $95. To RSVP, call Beth Cleary at 805.963.4757 x10 or email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Click here for more information about Girls Inc.

— Beth Cleary is a public relations and administrative coordinator for Girls Inc. of Greater Santa Barbara.

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!
