Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis Benefit Features a Delectable Menu by French Chef Denis Harle

Pulmonologist Robert Wright to be guest speaker for Nov. 19 research fundraiser at Goleta Valley Community Center

The Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis will hold a local benefit Nov. 19 to raise money for research into a cure for the lung disease, which kills more than 40,000 Americans every year.

Dr. Robert Wright, a pulmonary care physician with Santa Barbara Pulmonary Consultants, will be the keynote speaker at the event, which is 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Goleta Valley Community Center, 5679 Hollister Ave.

The evening also features a delicious and nutritious meal prepared by French macrobiotic chef Denis Harle. The menu includes Crostini with Tomatoes, Basil and Feta; Artichoke and Goat Cheese Bruschetta; Cucumber Wakame Salad with Lemon-Tahini Dressing; Burdock Kinpira with Toa!ed Sesame Seeds; Quinoa with Caramelized Onions and Sunflower Butter Gravy; Braised Cabbage with Umeboshi Plums; Marinated Tofu with Ginger; Steamed Kale and Brocoli with Ume-Orange Dressing; Red Radishes Pressed Salad; Lemon Apple Sauce Pudding with Almond Anise Biscotti; and nonalcoholic beverages.

Pulmonary fibrosis is a scarring of lung tissue that prevents breathing. There is no known cure for the condition.

Tickets to the Nov. 19 benefit are $100 per person, and donations to the nonprofit Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis are tax-deductible. To RSVP or to purchase tickets, call Helen Larsen at 805.964.1891 by 5 p.m. Wednesday.

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!
