With the many fun things to do right here in our Valley, it will be difficult to find a day this month where something wonderful isn’t happening. From golf tournaments to poker tournaments, walks, wine tastings, food festivals and musical productions, there’s something for everyone.
We, at The Magazine of Santa Clarita, are so pleased to get the opportunity to participate in as many of these non-profit events. Showing our support for these worthy organizations is important to us. Because of our commitment to the community, Moe and I were recently notified that we will be the recipients of this year’s American Cancer Society’s Legacy of Hope Award for Community Awareness Leadership. We are extremely honored to be given this distinct award.
We are excited to feature some of the participants of the Frontier Toyota/Henry Mayo Drive Safe Golf Classic on the cover of this issue. Tee off for a great time at the Golf Classic on Saturday, May 21 at the Valencia Country Club, all to benefit the hospital’s emergency room and trauma services. See page 6 for more details.
