Rotary Rolls Out 7th Annual Bowling for Kids Benefit

Organizers aim to raise $50,000 for United Boys & Girls Club, Northside Rotary Club youth programs.


United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara County and the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North are partnering on April 27 to raise funds for at-risk youth. Two hundred bowlers hope to help local youth score by raising more than $50,000 in the Seventh Annual Bowling for Kids benefit.

“This is a great time for a great cause," say Theresa and Derek Carlson, who are co-chairing the event. "You don’t have to be a bowler to have fun and make a difference!”


All of the proceeds from the event will return to the local community. Half will go directly to the United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara County’s Westside Club for its after-school day care programs.  The Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North’s Charitable Foundation will distribute the remaining proceeds to nonprofit programs for at-risk youth.

Teams from the Rotary Club, Boys & Girls Club and our major sponsors — Bartlett, Pringle & Wolf; Brown & Brown Insurance; 401K Plan SolutionsMarBorg Industries; McGowan-Guntermann; Mission Linen Supply; Wells Fargo; Westhoff, Cone & Holmstedt; and W.I.P. Communications — will take over Zodo’s Bowling & Beyond, 5925 Calle Real, from 10 a.m. until noon April 27 for this exciting event!

Sponsors and winning bowlers will be honored immediately after the tournament at noon.  Each participant will receive lunch and be entered into a drawing for prizes that include whale watching, hotel stays, dinners at Santa Barbara’s finest restaurants and much more.

Enter to bowl (ticket/donation cost is $150 per person) or become an event sponsor by April 23 by calling Derek Carlson at 805.963.1852. Individual donations to support this event are also welcome and can be made to the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara North Charitable Foundation, P.O. Box 3293, Santa Barbara 93130.

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!
