Boys & Girls Club Bets Casino Fundraiser Will be a Winner

United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara County (UBGC) has announced Corks for Kids, its first fundraising event in the Santa Ynez and Buellton community, will be held 6-8 p.m. Friday, April 20, at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott.

The event will have a casino theme, and included with a ticket purchase is an initial buy-in of funny money for the table games. Appetizers will be served to pair with beer and wine tastings from local vendors.

“We are excited to finally be hosting an event in the valley since we opened our Buellton club this past August," said Erynn Wanek, vice president of development for UBGC.

"We’ve had great success so far and hope to continue to grow our organization with more locations to reach more kids who need our services," Wanek said. "It will be a great evening to connect and foster the relationships in our Buellton community.”

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!
