United Way of Santa Barbara County Leaders to Get Dunked for a Cause

On Thursday, board members, staff and others from the community will have their chance to dunk United Way of Santa Barbara County CEO Paul Didier as well as Steve Ortiz, director of development and marketing.

This lively event will raise funds for United Way’s community programs, which all take place in Santa Barbara County.

The festivities are part of United Way’s giving campaign, encouraging staff to donate to their own organization. This year’s theme is United We Play, highlighting the many ways incorporating play into our lives enhances teamwork, creativity and strategic thinking, among other benefits.

Adding to the fun will be a visit from the Burger Bus, which will be serving food throughout the morning and early afternoon.

Stop by United Way of Santa Barbara County’s offices at 320 E. Gutierrez St. between 10:30 a.m. and noon Thursday to join in on the fun and support your local community!

— Dominique Samario is a development executive for United Way of Santa Barbara County.

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!
