The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project, one of the most respected and visible agencies in the area dedicated to counseling the region's children and young adults, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with an exclusive gala fundraiser at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia on Thursday, May 20.

Supporters of this unique and special event will have privileged and private access to many of the park's famed rides and roller coasters from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. when Magic Mountain is open only to SCV Youth Project patrons.

At this special gala, guests will enjoy a fully catered dinner from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., free parking and exclusive access to the park for the gala festivities.

Tickets are on sale now to this important fundraiser priced at $40 per adults and $25 per ticket for kids 17 and under.

"I can't think of a better way to acknowledge and support the SCV Youth Project and our decade of service to area teens," said Kim Goldman, executive director of the Youth Project. If you were ever looking for a VIP experience at Magic Mountain free of hassles, crowds and long lines, this is it!

"On May 20, you will pretty much have the park to yourself as a private playground," Goldman said. "As we head into summer, this is the perfect time to reward your kids, grand kids or employees with a fun night out. Or maybe, you just want to behave like a kid yourself and ride some of the best roller coasters in the world with your friends."

Proceeds from the event will provide much needed funding to one of the most visible organizations in the area. The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project is a nonprofit agency dedicated to working with teens 12-18, providing free peer mentoring, support groups, outreach, crisis intervention, and education, at all the junior high and high school campuses in the Santa Clarita Valley area.

During the last 10 years, the SCV Youth Project has provided assistance to more than 27,000 area teens and pre-teens and 5,000 adults.

"We are incredibly proud of our growth over the past 10 years and the range of programs and services we provide teens on school campuses practically every day," Goldman said.

Tickets to the event can be used all day at the park. But the real fun begins promptly at 6 p.m., when Magic Mountain closes for the day to general customers and the party begins exclusively for Youth Project guests and benefactors.

The event is sponsored Poole & Shaffery, LLP, The ESP Guitar Company and KHTS.

The SCV Youth Project helps kids facing such serious issues as drug/alcohol abuse, anger, divorce, peer pressure, grief/loss, suicide, depression, etc. The Youth Project offers free, bilingual, one-to-one or group counseling, distribute FRY cards (which lists emergency numbers) and leads a variety of specialized youth programs.
