In addition, the VIA Vision and Inspiration Award will be given to a school within the William S. Hart Union High School District in recognition of active involvement in the Connecting to Success program, a privately funded half-day conference offering important workplace readiness skills to high school students.

The award is VIA and the VIA Education Foundation’s highest honor in recognition of the communication, collaboration, and collective efforts in furthering Connecting to Success.

Starting in spring 2020, the curriculum will be available to every sophomore class student in area high schools and teaches young people the necessary skills to bridge from student life to work life, and to be successful once they enter the workforce.

The program connects business leaders to a future employment pool that will be ready for the demands of a job. There is an unlimited number of $20 Little Black Book sponsorship opportunities available, which sends one high school student to VIA’s workplace-readiness Connecting to Success program.

“The VIA BASH has become one of the must-attend business events in the Santa Clarita Valley,” said Teresa Todd, Chairwoman of the Board. “This year, the signature gala transforms into a ‘Night to Remember’ inspired by Truman Capote’s infamous social event of 1966.”

Capote aspired to create an occasion that brought together a diversity of guests from his little black book to create visual unity using the most severe of color palettes: black and white attire.

Guests at VIA’s Black & White BASH will enjoy themed décor while dancing to the high-energy sounds of Crowd Theory Entertainment, a cover band offering a unique and memorable alternative to the conventional live music experience. Black or white attire is encouraged.

Proceeds from the event benefit the VIA Education Foundation’s Connecting to Success program.

VIA is grateful for the support of its generous sponsors including Title Sponsor Nola Aronson’s Advanced Audiology and VIP Room Sponsor Tweddell & Associates representing Primerica.

Black Tie sponsors include College of the Canyons, Thrivent Financial, Santa Clarita Magazine, Elite Magazine, InsideSCV Magazine, SCVTV, and The Signal.

White Glove sponsors include Back to Health Chiropratic, Burrtec Waste Industries, Inc., City of Santa Clarita, Comfort Keepers In-Home Care, Courier Messenger, Inc., Fivepoint, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, Mission Valley Bank, Mission View Public School, Norona Insurance, QM Design Group, Point of View Communications, ReMax of Santa Clarita, Southern California Edison and SOS Entertainment.

For tickets, visit www.via.org/via-bash or contact the VIA office at admin@via.org or 661-294-8088.

The Hyatt Regency Valencia is located at 24500 Town Center Drive, Valencia 91355.
