The White House/Black Market store at Paseo Nuevo will host an event to benefit the Diana Basehart Foundation, a local nonprofit organization that helps keep families and their beloved animals together by providing essential veterinary care during difficult financial times.

The free and public event will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 16 at the White House/Blake Market in Paseo Nuevo, 651 Paseo Nuevo in Santa Barbara.

Basehart has devoted her life to helping our four-legged friends and those who love them. She and her late husband, actor Richard Basehart, are credited with starting the movement to protect animals.

Together, they formed Actors and Others for Animals in the early days of Hollywood, and the organization is still going strong.

Meet Basehart and her constant companion, a little Yorkie named Nell, who will be in attendance from 1 to 3 p.m. Basehart will speak about the great need in our own community and will share inspirational real-life stories about the families they have helped.

Shoppers are welcome to bring their own pets and will enjoy an array of baked goods. Those who make a donation to the Diana Basehart Foundation will receive 10 percent off any purchases.

— Patti Teel represents the Diana Basehart Foundation.

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!
