Junior League to Honor Dudley at 10th Annual Gala

The Junior League of Santa Barbara (JLSB) invites community members to join in celebrating its 10th Annual Gala del Mar, April 7 at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, 113 Harbor Way.

The Junior League will honor Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley with its Woman of the Year award for her service and commitment to the Santa Barbara community.

Since her election in 2010, Dudley has dedicated herself to bettering Santa Barbara County by seeking justice for all.

JLSB believes Dudley exemplifies all facets of the nonprofit organization's mission: promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

The evening also will feature updates on the Junior League’s signature project, S.A.F.E. House Santa Barbara (S​aving A​t-risk Youth F​rom Exploitation), and opportunities to give to the JLSB's vision and mission.

Gala attendees can enjoy an evening of cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, music and dancing, a silent auction and a wine raffle. Guests are urged to wear colorful Gala del Mar attire to complement the theme.

Tickets to the event are $100 for general admission, $150 for VIP admission. Tickets available at JLSantaBarbara.org.

VIP tickets include early entry at 5:30 p.m. with complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. General admission entry begins at 6:30 p.m.

“We are so excited to share with our generous donors, sponsors, friends and community the progress we’ve made in opening Santa Barbara County’s first shelter for girls who are survivors of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking,” said Danielle Hazarian, Junior League president.

“The entire league has worked so hard to bring this project to fruition, and we cannot express enough thanks to those who have supported us along the way,” she said.

JLSB unveiled its signature project at last year’s gala. S.A.F.E. House is a six-bed, residential shelter in Santa Barbara County for girls who have been victims of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking.

Those interested in donating, but are unable to attend the gala, can donate online at JLSantaBarbara.org or email to [email protected] for alternate supporting options.

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!
