“We are thrilled to be honoring Jacquie Petersen as our 11th Woman of Honor. Jacquie and her husband quietly came to the Santa Clarita to follow their family after much notoriety in the Brentwood Area. But it didn’t take long for Santa Clarita to embrace this wonderful couple as its own.” said Julie Sturgeon, a member of the Board of Directors of Betty Ferguson Foundation, and Co-Chair of the event.
“For us, this event is the high point of every year,” said Marjanne Priest, Co-Founder of the Foundation. “We have honored several amazing women over the past ten years,” she continued, “and we are looking forward to seeing many of them at this year’s event!”

"The Betty Ferguson Foundation is proud to be rescuing puppies, and having them as part of our Live Auction to raise money for our programs. Due to our own love for dogs, we are sending them off with shots, neutering/spaying certificates, food, beds etc, to get them started in their loving new homes. We do not feel that we are doing anything wrong, immoral, or unethical by having two puppies as part of our Fundraiser. This is a private event where all guests are known and respected in our community. We will place these dogs in the hands of animal lovers who will, in turn, sign a Responsible Pet Owner Release.”
