Local Restaurants Teaming Up to Support ‘Dine Out for CADA Kids’ Fundraiser

The Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse is preparing for its second annual Dine Out for CADA Kids, Santa Barbara’s largest one day Dine Out fundraiser!

This exciting daylong event will be held Tuesday, June 30 and supports CADA’s youth substance prevention programs reaching thousands of area youngsters. Residents are invited to dine at their favorite participating restaurant. Up to 25 percent of proceeds will go to support CADA Kids.

CADA Kids includes:

» The Mentor Program
» Teen Court at the Daniel Bryant Center
» START and CARE — early intervention programs in grade schools
» Friday Night Live & Club Live leadership programs
» Youth Service Specialists — serving all local public junior high and high schools

In its inaugural year, over 1,000 patrons visited one of the 21 restaurants signed up and the event raised over $10,000 for CADA Kids programs.

“This show of solidarity by so many restaurant owners and managers speaks volumes for their commitment to helping youth in our community make healthy choices," CADA President Ed Stonefelt said. "We are looking forward to another banner year.”

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!
