Summer Solstice Announces Emerald Ball Fundraiser

Summer Solstice Celebration, Santa Barbara’s jewel of Summer, has announced a fabulously fun-filled evening: its annual Emerald Ball

Join in from 7 p.m. - 12 a.m. Saturday, March 19, 2016, at Warren B’s, downtown’s new premiere event location, located 731 De la Guerra Plaza.

The annual fundraiser is a celebration of spring and the beginning of wonderful art being created for the parade, which takes place June 25, 2016, and festival weekend, which takes place June 24-26, 2016, at Alameda Park.

In honor of the green beauty of spring, the Solstice offers you the opportunity to bedeck in your finery and join its organizers for an evening of music, entertainment, fun, drinks and food.

Masks, ball gowns, costumes, tuxes, boas and anything green are encouraged for all attendees.

The ball will include live music from the ever-popular Spencer the Gardener, dance performances from La Boheme Professional Dance Group and hot tunes to dance the night away from DJ Darla Bea.

All are invited to this fundraiser to help raise some green and make this year’s Summer Solstice Parade legendary, as the Emerald Ball’s “Legends” theme will surely be.

Robby Robbins is the development and communications director for Summer Solstice Celebration.

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!
