Movie Night to Benefit Couple Burned in Tea Fire

The Downtown Organization is partnering with The Metropolitan Theatres Corporation and Paseo Nuevo to hold a movie benefit Dec. 15 to support the Lance and Carla Hoffman Trust.

The Hoffmans were badly injured in the recent Tea Fire. They two are facing an uphill medical and financial crisis, their burns are extensive and their family is estimating that it will be two to three months before they can leave the hospital. The pair are longtime employees of downtown businesses.

In addition to the benefit movie screening of Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, which is expected to begin at 7 p.m. and was donated by the Metropolitan Theatres, there also will be a special ticket that includes a pre-movie reception in their courtyard. That event is expected to begin at 5:45 p.m.

The Downtown Organization is seeking food, wine, service, media and monetary donations, as well as volunteers for the benefit.

For more information or to make a donation, call Jennifer Rose at 805.962.2098, ext. 22.

Jennifer Rose is operations director for the Downtown Organization.

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!
