INDY TAKES OBERAMMERGAU: Fifty-seven-year Santa Barbara resident Marguerite Monroy Sanchez boasts many passions, one of which led her to witness the 2010 incarnation of Oberammergau, Germany’s “Passion Play,” a haunting performance of Jesus Christ’s last days that’s been happening once every decade since 1634 and requires the theatrical services of more than 2,000 villagers. (That’s where this pic comes from.) The financial analyst for Santa Barbara Superior Court also loves her role as secretary-treasurer for Doctors Without Walls. “My passion is to raise awareness and help fund the free medical care that Santa Barbara’s amazing doctors provide to our unsheltered homeless,” said the Mesa-raised Indy reader. “We save the county tremendous amounts of money by treating these homeless where they live on the streets, thus keeping them out of our local emergency rooms.” And we’re happy to hear that The Indy is another passion of hers. “I absolutely love The Independent,” said Sanchez. “It is my go-to magazine for what’s up in Santa Barbara.”
