You Can Take the Cake at Good News for Our Kids Benefit

Child Evangelism Fellowship's annual fundraiser hits sweet spot for Bible study clubs

Child Evangelism Fellowship will hold its Sixth Annual Good News for Our Kids Benefit on Thursday to raise funds and support for the nonprofit Christian group’s cornerstone program, the Good News Club.

The Santa Barbara chapter of CEF annually sponsors between eight and 15 Good News Clubs in local schools. More than 300 students participated in the free program last year, according to chapter director Colleen Ishimaru.

Thursday’s benefit includes CEF’s popular cake auction featuring cakes donated by local bakeries. After a taste test, the goods will be auctioned off. The icing on the cakes for CEF? Previous years’ winning bids have averaged about $1,000 per cake, Ishimaru said.

The benefit is 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort Hotel, 633 E. Cabrillo Blvd. For more information or to RSVP, contact Ishimaru at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call 805.964.2245.

Founded in 1937 by Jesse Irvin Overholtzer, CEF has more than 1,800 missionaries working overseas, and 700 full-time workers and about 40,000 volunteers in North America.

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!
