Midwives Help Give Birth to Beer for Fundraiser

Join the midwives of the Santa Barbara Birth Center (SBBC) for a fundraising event, 4-7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, at The Brewhouse, 229 W. Montecito St.

The Brewhouse is a silver sponsor for the upcoming SBBC 5k Run/Walk and Wellness Fair, Saturday, May 5.

Proceeds from the featured beer Anything She Says Gose will directly support the Santa Barbara Birth Center's subsidy fund. Anything She Says Gose is a top-fermented beer (pronounced Goes-uh). It was crafted in March with help from the midwives.

The SBBC subsidy fund affords low-income and under-insured women access to the out-of-hospital care provided by the Birth Center, a 501c3 nonprofit.

Raffle tickets will be available for purchase to bid on a variety of themed prize baskets full of goods and services from local businesses.

The fundraiser will include live music, food/beer/wine, massages, ice cream, and a variety of local vendors and businesses.

Vendors include Heat Culinary Food Truck, Nalulife Creations, McConnell's Fine Ice Cream, Virtuosa Studio, k'Boodle, Tinkle Belle, Special Handmade, Kindermusik, Marshak Wine Company, The Brewhouse, and an entire section of massage therapists.

The 5k Run/Walk & Wellness Fair on May 5 is open to the public. It is not necessary to be a Birth Center family (or even have kids) to participate.

Learn more and register for the 5k at Search Santa Barbara Birth Center.

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!
