A Note From the Publishers – May 2016

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

 With spring in full swing, and summer just on the horizon, we naturally turn a renewed focus to health.  Like a guardian over Santa Clarita Valley residents, our local hospital has been busy expanding, improving and keeping us all healthy year after year, and as longtime supporters of Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, we are so proud to feature the Emergency Department and annual Frontier Toyota/Henry Mayo “Drive Safe” Golf Classic on our cover this month.  Constantly growing, the ED has received several important designations, and that training has paid off.  On page 4, read about a local resident who wouldn’t be alive today without the expert staff and state-of-the-art facility at Henry Mayo’s ED.
In support of the ED, we invite you all to take a swing at the 43rd Annual Frontier Toyota/Henry Mayo “Drive Safe” Golf Classic on May 14 at Valencia Country Club.  With a helicopter golf ball drop, on-course food and fun activities, this iconic event is a great way to invest in the health of our beautiful community for generations to come.
Another demonstration of this community’s vibrant growth, Old Town Newhall has more to offer than ever before!  Our special section pays tribute to the wonderful, innovative and community-oriented businesses that have transformed this little corner of our valley into such a hot destination.  We invite you to read our editorials, thumb through the beautiful pages and discover stores, services and eateries you didn’t even know were here.  And keep an eye out for this section because it will be printed as a separate tab and distributed throughout the Santa Clarita Valley.
This issue is full of guides!  In addition to our special section, this issue offers four niche guides to help you find exactly what you’re looking for – without leaving the Santa Clarita Valley.  One of our largest and most popular, the Medical Guide will help you find a doctor or professional for literally any health concern, from podiatry to medical spas to family counseling.
Once you’ve got your medical professionals picked out, flip to the Physical Fitness Guide to meet your exercise goals and renew yourself and your family to full health.  When it comes to a workout, there are so many choices available today – let our guide take the hard work out of finding the perfect match for you.
And don’t forget Mom!  Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide offers a beautiful selection of presents; there’s sure to be something perfect for any mom.  It’s our hope that these guides make your life a little easier this month, especially since May is busier than ever with events that will enliven your mind, body and spirit this spring!
Kicking off with an all-time SCV favorite, Taste of the Town will be a delight for the taste buds on May 1 at Mann Biomedical Park.  Be sure to visit our wonderful advertisers and sample their delicious menus – we promise you won’t be disappointed!
Two events – the Special Olympics Spring Regional Games and the National Parkinson’s Foundation Moving Day – are being held on May 14, giving you a choice of two fundraisers that support health and great causes.  The Spring Regional Games will be held at the Hart High School track, and Moving Day will be held at Central Park in Saugus.
Another busy day, three events take place on May 21: the WiSH Education Foundation’s Distinguished Alumni Awards, the Domestic Violence Center Fairy Brunch Showcase and American Cancer Society’s two-day Relay 4 Life.  Meet celebrities and accomplished individuals who hail from Santa Clarita at the Distinguished Alumni Awards, to be held at the Modular Theatre at CalArts; a premier event, this is sure to be an elegant evening.  Bringing together 11 local restaurants, the Fairy Brunch Showcase at Savia Center promises delicious food, family fun and an important message.  A longtime favorite and hugely celebrated event, Relay 4 Life from May 21-22 at Central Park in Saugus is sure to be a worthwhile experience for every participant, volunteer and vendor.
Another premier event, Jack’s Angels Foundation’s Relay for Jack held at Vasquez Rocks County Park will raise awareness for DIPG, a deadly form of pediatric brain cancer.  With so much to do and see in Santa Clarita, May is looking to be a wonderful month!
We hope you’ve seen the most recent issue of élite Magazine because we’re busy working on the next one, and it’s going to be a beauty!  Don’t miss your chance to vote for élite Magazine’s Ultimate Dining Awards and support your favorite local eateries.  Voting is live until May 19, and you can weigh in by visiting www.scvelitemagazine.com today!
Lastly, we’d like to congratulate our Editor Kirsten Quinn on her recent engagement to Perry Smith.  It’s going to be fun to have a bride in the office as we gear up for our next élite Bridal Magazine!

Cheers,  Linda, Moe and Alexander Hafizi
