Hospice of Santa Barbara Honors Heroes of Hospice Award Recipients

On Oct. 24, supporters of Hospice of Santa Barbara gathered to celebrate the 2014 Heroes of Hospice.

The event honored three champions who have made a significant difference both to Hospice of Santa Barbara and to the community by advancing compassionate end-of-life care in Santa Barbara.

The 2014 Heroes of Hospice award recipients are Jill Nida, Volunteer Award; Jill Kitnick, Philanthropist Award; and Sarah House, Professional Award. Hospice of Santa Barbara also recognized emeritus board members Jill Nida, Charlie Zimmer, Peggy Barnes and Thomas Fly at the event.

In addition to the award ceremony, the event also featured an exclusive art sale featuring works donated by numerous notable local artists. One-hundred percent of proceeds from the sale of the artwork benefited Hospice of Santa Barbara. Artwork from the event is still available for purchase.

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!
