Hospice of Santa Barbara invites the community to its 33rd annual Light Up A Life tree-lighting ceremonies to share a sense of joy and solidarity during the holidays.

The tree-lighting tradition recognizes a time to honor someone who is missed this holiday season. The free events will feature special guests, entertainment, and the lighting of a memorial tree with hundreds of sparkling lights and stars, each symbolizing a tribute to a loved one.

Stars are available online and will be available at each ceremony for a suggested donation of $15 or more for those wishing to personalize a star and hang it on the tree. All proceeds benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara.  

Dates and locations:

Sat., Dec. 3, 5:30 p.m. – Casa de la Guerra, 15 E. De La Guerra St., Santa Barbara.

Sun., Dec. 4, 5:30 p.m. – Camino Real Marketplace, Storke Road and Marketplace Drive, Goleta.

Sat., Dec. 10, 5:30 p.m. – Seal Fountain at Linden Plaza, Linden Ave., Carpinteria.

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!
