Hillside House Christmas Extravaganza to Benefit Aquatic Therapy Program

Christmas enthusiast and decorator extraordinaire Jeanne West will open her Santa Barbara home to Hillside House supporters and friends December 3rd for an evening of holiday entertainment and cheer benefitting the facility’s aquatic therapy program.

Jeanne West takes Christmas decorating seriously, leaving no corner of her house undecked with holiday treasures. Until now, only family and friends have been able to enjoy the fruits of her labor. But this year Jeanne is opening her Christmas dreamland to supporters and friends of Hillside House to raise funds for the facility’s aquatic therapy program.

With purchase of a ticket, guests will enjoy Jeanne’s seasonal delights as well as a perfect sunset over the Pacific from her deck. Warm Christmas drinks and wine will be served along with appetizers. 

Every year Hillside House must raise the funds necessary to maintain its aquatic therapy program – which is a favorite among residents who spend the bulk of their day in a wheelchair. Because constant confinement and muscle constriction is painful, an hour of weightlessness in a warm pool provides not only relief, but enhances flexibility and wellness. While Medi-Cal pays for Hillside House’s basic program needs, additional needs and enhancements like aquatic therapy, so vital to the wellbeing of our residents, are not covered. Hillside House is proud to have a dedicated on-site aquatic therapy pool--the only residential facility with its own pool in the area.

Only 100 tickets are available to this delightful event that doubles as an opportunity to help Hillside House residents. The price is $75. Visit the website for more information, or call Executive Assistant Isabelle Walker at 805-687-0788, ext. 123, or send her an email at [email protected].  We hope to see you there!

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!
