Santa Barbara Blues Society Benefit to Raise Funds for Fire Victims

Orlando Napier and the Cats and Dogs will be the life of the Statemynt Tea Party.

Katz Promotions and the Santa Barbara Blues Society present the Statemynt Tea Party, a benefit for the victims of the Tea Fire, at 8 p.m. Sunday at Statemynt, 519 State St.

The Statemynt Tea Party is a blues benefit to raise funds for residents who lost their homes in the fire. It’s also a chance to connect with friends, hear music and contribute to a great cause: helping neighbors who have suffered a terrible loss.

One of Santa Barbara’s own local blues favorites, Orlando Napier and the Cats and Dogs, will play for the benefit from 8 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The band is soulful, with magical flavors of blues and R&B. DJ Matty Matt Morris will take over at 10:30 p.m. Free food from California Pizza Kitchen will be served.

To help raise money for the people displaced by the fire:

» Buy raffle tickets for a chance to prizes donated by the business community

» Give a small donation: $5 donation requested at the door.

» Get a drink and tip the bartender: 10 percent of all bar sales for the night, and all tips, will be donated.

All proceeds will go directly to victims of the fire.

For more information, call 805.448.8234.

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!
