News & Announcements

Wine Event Raises Funds for Club Kids
“One March Night… A Special Wine Event” brought in $14,000 for Club kids on March 21 at Salt Creek Grille. Once again, Karl and Terry Kanowsky were excellent chairs. Adam and Diana Lee, the owners of Siduri Winery, were very generous donating wine and auction prizes. They agreed to double a popular package that included a wonderful collection of signed bottles from Siduri and Novy Wineries. The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley is grateful to everyone who helped make this evening such a success.

Basketball Star Visits Clubhouse
Charles Barkley, named one of the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History, came to the Newhall Clubhouse in February to film a commercial for CDW. He plays an “IT guy” who is hired to actually bring a basketball championship to the company Gordon & Taylor. In between takes, Barkley mingled and conversed with the kids. He also signed autographs and interrupted a Girl Scouts meeting to talk about women’s basketball.
