Dear community,

It was the Santa Clarita Valley's version of Mardi Gras, and thanks to everyone who helped us get the word out and stage the event, as well as all those who attended, the SCV Senior Center's 18th annual benefit auction was resounding success!

Our celebration, dubbed "A Hot August Night," raised much needed funds Saturday night to benefit the Senior Center's Home-Delivered Meals and Supportive Services. More than 300 people earned their beads, Mardi Gras-style, in the event held at the Mann Biomedical Park in Valencia.

We sincerely appreciate all of our media partners who helped us promote A Hot August Night: The Magazine of Santa Clarita, The Signal, KHTS and At Home Magazine. Without the support of our local media, our events would not get off the ground!

The event also couldn't have happened without the generous support of our many other sponsors, including: Boston Scientific, Lockheed Federal Credit Union, Facey Medical Group, Mann Biomedical Park, Comfort Keepers In-Home Care, Vino 100, Six Flags, Pardee Homes, Wolf Creek, Woodward HRT, The Social, SOS Entertainment, Advantage Disposal, Choppé Advertising Group, Unruh Chiropractic, Stern, Kory Sreden & Morgan, A-1 Rentals and The Drink Dr.

Live music, roving entertainers and a silent auction kicked off the evening, and the live auction bidding turned hot and heavy after the guests enjoyed a sumptuous Louisiana-style feast. Among the exciting live auction items were unique wines, sports memorabilia, a day with the SWAT team, a cooking lesson with celebrity chef David Lawrence, a chihuahua puppy and a total of five trips to New Orleans.

We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who made A Hot August Night such a success. And, please make sure to mark your calendar for our upcoming fundraiser: "Senior Prom" themed Celebrity Waiter dinner on Feb. 19, 2010.

Again, thanks to all for a truly HOT August Night!
