The gala is the highlight event of the year for JLSB, and 100 percent of funds raised will support the nonprofit organization's mission.

That mission is dedicated to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Guests, who are urged to wear colorful cocktail attire, will be greeted with an array of silent auction items while overlooking the beautiful Pacific coastline.

Dinner and dancing will follow, along with presentation of the Woman of the Year award to an outstanding female philanthropist who has made a notable difference in the local community.

The event will be highlighted by the unveiling of JLSB’s Signature Project: a multi-year initiative aimed at improving the lives of at-risk young women while working to prevent exploitation and injustice in our community.

Guests will learn more about this critical focus area and will be provided an opportunity to support this important work.

This year’s gala theme was chosen to honor the tradition of Fiesta and Old Spanish Days, which began in 1924, the same year Junior League of Santa Barbara was established.

The JLSB not only shares a birthday with this most special annual celebration, but also shares a passion for investing in and protecting this place we are lucky to call home. For more information, visit www.jlsantabarbara.org or call 963-2704.

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!
