The Santa Barbara-based environmentally friendly dry cleaners is donating a portion of all its dry-cleaning proceeds for the month of October to cancer research. It’s part of the Pink Hanger Program, designed to support cancer research both monetarily and by raising awareness.
“Donations will go to the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara,” said Sasha Ablitt, owner of the local business. "We will also be selling 'Clean for the Cure' T-shirts, and the proceeds will go to cancer ​research."

Additionally, an Ablitt’s team is participating in the Oct. 16 walk/run, sponsored by Cancer Center of Santa Barbara with Sansum Clinic.

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!
