The National Charity League, Inc. Senior Recognition event, honoring 26 high school senior graduates, most of whom have been volunteering through the organization for six years, will be Sunday, May 13, at Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort (formerly Fess Parker’s Doubletree).

The annual black-tie optional celebration marks the culmination of the young ladies’ years of service to the Santa Barbara community.

The Santa Barbara Chapter of the National Charity League (NCL) currently supports 20 local nonprofits through its mission to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.

The evening opens with a welcome from NCL president Rebecca Ingram and a slideshow highlighting all girls in the league (grades 7-12) who are actively involved in community service endeavors.

A skit starring the class of 2018 is next, followed by a fashion show featuring junior and senior Ticktockers (as the students are known) modeling the latest looks as donated by Allora, Ambience, Angel Montecito, Chasen, Diani, K. Frank, Wendy Foster State Street, Wendy Foster Sportswear, Whistle Club, Whiskey & Leather.

The evening's highlight is the recognition of this year’s graduating class whose members have collectively volunteered 7,697 philanthropy hours over the past six years — and counting.

Senior recognition is chaired by NCL patronesses Kelly Hyatt and Allison Marcillac, who are overseeing details of the event, which expects to draw 500 attendees.

NCL membership begins when Ticktockers are in the 7th grade and continues through students’ senior year of high school. The Santa Barbara Chapter has been in operation since 1962.

Charities supported by National Charity League are: B.U.N.S. (Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter), CADA (Council on Alcholism & Drug Abuse), CALM (Child Abuse Listening Mediation), Explore Ecology, The Children’s Creative Project (I Madonnari Chalk Festival), Cottage Hospital.

The Dream Foundation, Direct Relief, Foodbank, HEARTS Adaptive Riding Center, Mental Wellness Center, Safety Town (Soroptimist International), Santa Barbara Museum of Art/Ridley-Tree Education Center, Special Olympics, Story Teller Children’s 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!
