First Responders Offered Free Tickets to Teen Star Finals

Teen Star is honoring Santa Barbara County first responders by offering complimentary tickets to the Teen Star Showcase Finale at the Arlington Theatre, 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24.

“There is so much appreciation in our community for our first responders given their ongoing heroics. Teen Star wanted to find our own special way to express our gratitude,” said founder Joe Lambert.  

ERG Resources is sponsoring 100 tickets for first responders who are encouraged to wear their uniforms or other identifying shirts at the event, so they can be recognized during the show.

“ERG has been looking for a meaningful way to participate in the recovery effort following the disasters. When this opportunity was brought to us it was a no-brainer,” said Ben Oakley of ERG Resources.

“At ERG we have many community partners that support youth programs and the arts, so the nexus between our corporate giving program and this sponsorship was a perfect fit," Oakley said.

"We are very excited to see the final show and share this experience with our local first responders and their families,” he said.

“We are grateful to Teen Star for their very kind donation of tickets to first responders, including the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office. Thank you for this recognition and support,” said Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown.

First responders can receive up to four complimentary tickets for themselves and their immediate families.

Tickets for the Teen Star Showcase Finale are on sale at or at the Arlington Box Office. The red-carpet event to welcome the Teen Star finalists begins at 6 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

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!
