UCSB to Provide 500 Basketball Tickets to Victims of Tea Fire

The UCSB Athletics Department has made available 500 tickets to any future men’s or women’s basketball game for victims of the Tea Fire that has devastated the Montecito and Santa Barbara area in the past several days, Athletics Director Mark Massari announced Monday.

Friday’s game against North Carolina is not included in the offer.

“If we can offer a UCSB basketball game as a small diversion to those effected by this terrible fire, we will,” Massari said. “It is always our goal to give back and use Gaucho athletics as a tool to help this special community.”

Residents who would like to take advantage of the offer should call the Athletics Ticket Office at 805.893.UCSB. Each resident will be given with one voucher that can be redeemed for up to four tickets.

Bill Mahoney is a UCSB assistant director of athletics communications.

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!
