Junior League of Santa Barbara Played Role in Battling 1926 Tuberculosis Outbreak

Did you know? In 1926, the Junior League of Santa Barbara organized the Sunshine Cottage to care for local children, saving many from the deadly effects of tuberculosis.

Check back with Noozhawk daily for additional information about the Junior League of Santa Barbara, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year.

On April 11, the league will hold its Seventh Annual Gala at the Coral Casino Beach & Cabana Club in Montecito. Funds raised at the benefit, sponsored by Tiffany & Co., will further the mission of the Junior League through membership training, programming and other worthy initiatives to continue with our success of bettering the community.

During the gala, we will be unveiling a new focus area, which will help us dig deeper into the greater needs of our community.

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!
