The Gala has a Mardi Gras theme and will include dinner, themed music and dancing. (Wearing Mardi Gras attire is optional.) All proceeds will benefit the Domestic Violence Center of the Santa Clarita Valley, a prominent local non-profit agency that provides domestic violence-related shelter, counseling and crisis services to residents of the 200-square mile Santa Clarita Valley. Funds raised at the event will be used for critical repairs needed for the Center’s Shelter house, including roof repairs, shelving needs, driveway and side yard concrete, playground equipment, and replacement of the heating, air conditioning and windows.
The Keith Richman Humanitarian Award is being presented to Assemblyman Smyth for his diligence in carrying on the tradition of the former Assemblyman and his dedication and service to the Domestic Violence Center. Assemblyman Smyth worked in a bi-partisan manner to save funding for Domestic Violence Prevention Shelters across California, which won him the honor of being named Legislator of the Year by the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence.
The Above and Beyond Award is honoring local attorney Hunt Braly for his significant volunteer and professional service to the Agency.
Cost for the dinner gala is $75 per person. Sponsorship is also available at the $5,000, $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000 levels and includes name recognition at the event and on the Center’s website, event program advertisement and gala tickets.
