Young Leaders Society Hosting Bowl-a-Thon for United We Read Program

Benefit event will be held Nov. 18 at Zodo’s Bowling & Beyond

More than 70 people will bowl together from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 at Zodo’s Bowling & Beyond to raise money for United Way of Santa Barbara County Young Leaders Society’s third annual Bowl-a-Thon to benefit United We Read and other valuable community programs.

This year’s event was made possible through the generosity of “The Strike” sponsors — Santa Barbara Bank & Trust and Venoco Inc.

United We Read matches young professional volunteers with a class at a local elementary school with the goal of engaging students to improve their enjoyment of reading and reading ability. The young professionals read to the students and donate books to the class or school’s library.

The visit is also a great opportunity for the students to learn about the young professionals’ careers and education. Students love to ask questions and interact one-on-one with the volunteers.

Individual tickets for the bowling event are $30, or $180 for a team of six, which includes two hours of bowling, shoes and a raffle ticket. Zodo’s is located at 5925 Calle Real in Goleta.

The goal of United Way’s Young Leaders Society is to promote and encourage philanthropy and volunteerism among the young leaders of Santa Barbara County, through participation in a variety of social, educational, volunteer and network opportunities.

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!
