Tip-A-Cop Dinner at Petrini’s to Benefit Santa Barbara County Special Olympics

The Santa Barbara County Probation Department, the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office and the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department invite you to a benefit for the Santa Barbara County Special Olympics.

County employees from the Sheriff’s Department, the District Attorney’s Office and County Probation will take your order and serve you dinner to earn their tips in our fifth annual Tip-A-Cop Dinner at Petrini’s Italian Restaurant in Goleta from 4:30 to 1 p.m. this Wednesday, May 20.

We raised more than $3,000 in 2013 at this event. All tips, as well as sales of the Santa Barbara County Special Olympics, “Guardians of the Flame” T-shirt will benefit the Santa Barbara Chapter of Special Olympics.

To make reservations, please call Petrini’s Italian Restaurant at 805.964.1200. T-shirts can be purchased with a $10 donation.

We hope to see you there!

— Kelly Hoover is a public information officer for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department.

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!
