From teachers to children overcoming great obstacles- or firefighters and police protecting our communities- to the volunteer that gives tirelessly to make the world a better place—and especially those who serve in the military—These people truly are the Heroes Among Us.”
Auction proceeds will supply nearly one-third of the critical funds needed for the entire year of operation of quality after-school and summer programs at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley. The Club serves over 2,400 children between the ages of seven and 17. Their mission, “to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”
