Winger, Sandnes, Hacker To Be Honored At Boy Scout Dinner

By Leon Worden,

The Boy Scouts of America have announced the honorees for the Seventh Annual Santa Clarita Valley Leaders of Character Recognition Dinner.

The 2012 list of distinguished honorees from Santa Clarita Valley business, government, and philanthropy are Kiki and Jeff Hacker, Marian and Richard Sandnes and Eileen Mann and Marc Winger.  The honor is presented annually to those who personify the character, values, and leadership demonstrated in the Boy Scout Oath and Law in their daily life.

A dinner in the recipients’ honor will be held at The Hyatt Regency Valencia on Saturday, October 13 at 6:30 pm.  The public is invited to join in recognition of the community leadership exemplified by these three couples.

Exciting auction items are available:  the KHTS Antique Fire Truck tour, an SCV street to be named in your honor, seaborne excursions on the lovely Valkyrie yacht, custom makeup by Joseph Saenz, flights and outdoor adventures galore, and more… with the handsome young Scouts of SCV to encourage your bidding.

This year’s remarkable couples join a distinguished group of Santa Clarita Valley community and business leaders.  Past Leaders of Character recipients include: Chell and Greg Amsler, Kristie and Kerry Carmody, Myrna and Gary Condie, Cheri and Don Fleming, Jeri and Carl Goldman, Bob Kellar, Cathy and Bill Kennedy, Marilyn and Kevin Malone, Sue and Larry Mankin, the Honorable Howard P. “Buck” and Patricia McKeon, Ann and Rick Patterson, Jacquie and Harold Petersen, Peggy and Larry Rasmussen, Barbara and Joe Schulman, Dianne and Roger Van Hook, Jim Ventress, Laurene Weste and Jim McCarthy.
