A Note From the Publishers – February 2016

by | Feb 1, 2016 | A Note From the Publisher

 Our cover is all “Fun & Games” this month, as we feature the SCV Senior Center’s Celebrity Waiter Dinner.  With a theme that’s sure to keep guests entertained all evening long, this fantastic event is filled with fun and antics each and every year.  We look forward to the live entertainment, packed dance floor and wide selection of auction items, and we can’t wait to see what costumes and table décor are in store on Saturday, February 27 at Hyatt Regency Valencia.
Love is in the air this month, and on February 13, color will be too!  Back by popular demand, the third annual Santa Colorita Run is hosted by the SCV Chamber of Commerce.  Spectators and runners alike can join the fun, tossing colored powder into the air and greeting runners with a shower of pigment as they cross the finish line.  As we all think about heart health in the month of February, the Santa Colorita Run is the perfect way to have fun while being healthy.
Families and running enthusiasts have another chance to cross the finish line with SOAR’s annual Mardi Gras Madness 5K/10K on Sunday, February 21 at Valencia Town Center.  Students Off And Running provides an LA Marathon training experience to children in need, who may not otherwise have access to fitness programs.  With last year’s sellout crowd, this year is sure to be a blast for all members of the family.
Santa Clarita is well known throughout the region for being the perfect place to raise a family, and we can attest to the many perks of this wonderful community.  With so much to offer here, we are pleased to announce our new Real Estate section, to premiere in the March issue!  A one-stop shop for homebuyers, this new section will feature top listings and properties from local realtors.
Also in this issue, we feature wedding photos from our readers, and they are beautiful!  We love seeing our readers engage with us and share their milestones on our pages, and this month, we’re asking for pet photos! With such a pet-loving community, we can’t wait to see what comes in.  Turn to page 21 for details on how to submit.
If you’re looking to spoil your loved one this Valentine’s Day, we have the perfect guide for you.  Turn to page 36 for our Valentine’s Gift Guide, full of unique and special ideas for the one who means the most.  We hope you shop local this month, and spread the love to our local businesses.
While the Valentine’s Gift Guide can help with the fun stuff, our CPA Guide is the perfect place to find an expert who will help you sort through the stressful process of filing your taxes.  If you get started now, these professionals can make the process painless.
We are so excited to announce our first-ever élite Bridal Magazine has arrived in homes, and the outpouring of support from this community has been wonderful!  Thank you to the team at SCVTV for inviting our Associate Publisher Amanda Benson to appear as a guest on SCV Today, as well as for sharing our February/March issue of élite Magazine with viewers.  We hope Amanda didn’t cause too much trouble on set!
As you flip through the pages of élite, we hope you enjoy the bridal tips and tricks, fantastic stories about local people, and lovely photos from Santa Clarita’s top bridal vendors.  You’ll also find the winners of élite Magazine’s Ultimate Bridal Professionals!  Congratulations to our winners, who provide beautiful services to couples in the Santa Clarita Valley and beyond.  Don’t miss your chance to vote for the Ultimate Beauty and Fitness Professionals, on our website now.
Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Linda, Moe and Alexander Hafizi
