United Way Hosts Thank You Reception to Recognize Most Generous Donors

Last Wednesday, April 23, supporters of United Way of Santa Barbara County gathered at the home of Jim and Stephanie Sokolove for an evening of wine, hors d’oeuvres and an award ceremony honoring those individuals who showed significant support for UWSBC’s local community programs, including Fun in the Sun, United for Literacy and the Financial Empowerment Partnership.

Guests included members of the Alexis de Tocqueville Society, who make a gift of $10,000 or more on an annual basis to United Way.

Last year, 29 individuals, couples and local family foundations contributed more than $526,000 for United Way programs.

UWSBC’s Leadership Circle is comprised of 341 individuals who pledge $1,000 to $9,999 from home and in the workplace. Their combined gift was more than $619,000.

Supporter Molly Wrather Dolle received the Alexis de Toqueville Award for Outstanding Philanthropy.

Supporter William Gordon received the Outstanding Volunteer of Time, Talent & Treasure for Individual Leadership Giving Award.

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!
