CASA in Running to Be Beneficiary of 2014 Santa Barbara Triathlon

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is one of six Santa Barbara area nonprofits in the running to be the 2014 beneficiary of the Santa Barbara Triathlon.

The winning nonprofit will receive all event proceeds — a goal set at $50,000 — raised by participating athletes and volunteers.

The presenting sponsor of the Santa Barbara Triathlon is Montecito Bank & Trust, which continually showcases their commitment to giving back to the community though its unique giving programs and generosity.

The goal of CASA is to prevent abused, neglected and abandoned children from becoming lost in the juvenile dependency system. The impact that Court Appointed Special Advocates make on the trajectory of an abused and neglected child’s future is incredible — and measurable. There are countless stories of how a volunteer advocate provided a young heart and mind with the hope for a better tomorrow.

“We have notified our supporters of this great opportunity, encouraging them to go online and vote for us," said Kim Davis, executive director for CASA. "This funding will help us serve more abused and neglected children in Santa Barbara County by training fifty new CASA volunteers!”

Vote before Nov. 30. Votes can be accepted online by clicking here and at local branches of Montecito Bank & Trust.

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!
