Dolphin Smile Benefit to Help Buoy the Planet

Santa Barbara’s The Dolphin Smile Celebration Benefit is being held and sponsored by The Bobcat Room, 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 5.

The Bobcat Room is a new retro swanky lounge (ages 21 and older) featuring farm-to-bar handcrafted cocktails at 11 West Ortega St., Santa Barbara.

The Dolphin Smile event will feature ocean-themed cocktails, complimentary food, a live and silent community auction, oceanic footage, and SEA postcard giveaways.

Those attending will be helping to launch The Dolphin Smile Eco-Tour, an interactive global tour focusing on Dolphin Talk, practical "waves" of living and "why we matter" through discoveries learned from dolphin and animal communications.

Donations also are being used to educate the public and communities worldwide about planetary care for humans and non-humans, including our rippling effect by leaving behind “flipper footprints.”

Suggested donation is $10-$20 at the door. Ten percent of the door’s proceeds benefit JMC’s Ocean Futures Society

For those who can't attend, donations can be made at

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!
