Autism Awareness Group to Rock at Fair & Expo

Benefit concert at Earl Warren Showgrounds to assist Talk About Curing Autism Santa Barbara.

April is Autism Awareness Month, and the organization Talk About Curing Autism is holding a benefit concert April 25 at Earl Warren Showgrounds in conjunction with the Santa Barbara Fair & Expo. Proceeds from the concert will help the nonprofit TACA Santa Barbara establish support programs to help families in need.

The concert will showcase three acts, and all are connected to autism in some way. The first act will cater to children, the second to kids and adults, and the third to teens and adults. Featured performers include:

Lanny Sherwin, a Santa Barbara native and award-winning children’s musician who has written and produced four CDs.

Kodi Lee, a blind, autistic savant musician and singer who plays rock ‘n’ roll and classic rock.

The PenFifteen Club, a Ventura-based rock band with hits such as the “Mrs. Hilton” theme song from The Simple Life.

The concert is 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. April 25 at Earl Warren Showgrounds. Tickets are $10 for children 2-12 years old, $15 for adults, and $25 for V.I.P. seating. All tickets include entrance to the Santa Barbara Fair & Expo. Click here to purchase tickets online.

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!
