Is there someone in your life who could use a break, a good turn or a bit of relief? How about a little color in their world - or perhaps some new color on their house? If you do, grab a pen because you may be moments away from making a big difference in his or her life. You may be moments away from brightening someone's day, even as you brighten the color of his or her walls, window frames and moldings.
What do you get when you mix hyper-exclusive wines with public servants who like to shake their money maker? If you were a guest at the Loose Goose Festival's Golden Goose Gala, you know that the answer is the newly nicknamed Steve "I've Got a Spell on You" Sturgeon, who made like Travolta and wowed the female crowd with his smooth moves. Steve, while you may still be in swoon state over your newfound popularity, know this, you debonair darling: You had us at "Hello."
If you had told me in February that the Inside SCV Singles events would draw over 500 people to numerous local hotspots all in the name of fun, I would have laughed you out of the room. I was hoping that our first event at Wolfcreek would boast 40 people; instead, we had over 150! Nearly a dozen events later, I'm still amazed at how many awesome single folks live or work in Santa Clarita. Over the last handful of months, I have met tons of regular attendees and have made more new friends than I can count.
Every life is its own incredible story. Those words form the motto of veteran entertainment industry producer Brad Sevy's latest project known as Wonderful Lives Productions. But those words are more than a motto. They are, in a sense, the reason behind what Sevy does. They have become the recipe for the magic he creates. The ingredients, on the other hand, are regular folks like you.

Longtime SCV resident Cathy Duus had no idea what was coming the day she decided to hang her first hummingbird feeder in her backyard back in 1995. But there were a few clues. That first feeder - the same no-frills, 16-ounce feeder you'd find at Target or Wal-Mart - emptied fast, suspiciously fast. "I was sure it had a leak," says Duus. "I just couldn't believe it would empty that fast." But this was no leak, not literally, anyway.
Ever marveled at the handiwork of the street painters? With little more than a handful of colored chalk, a model picture and a good pair of kneepads, they can turn a patch of ordinary asphalt into a stunning work of art. In a matter of hours, these street virtuosos can take the very ground you walk on and drive over, and transform it into a platform for something beautiful. Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Chagall. Picasso, Monet and Matisse. Rivera and Renoir and Michelangelo.
Boo! What kid, or adult for that matter, wouldn't enjoy experiencing a classic Halloween night out a whole 10 days before the actual calendared event? This year, the volunteers who make up the Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society will host Heritage Haunt on Saturday, October 21. Held at Heritage Junction, located on San Fernando Road in Newhall, the event will run from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. For guests 6 years and older, the historic Pardee House will become a place of giggles and screams; the old Santa Clarita home will evolve into a haunted house for anyone who dares enter.
The eighth Annual Crawford-Fleming Breast Cancer Awareness Golf Invitational will be held at the Valencia Country Club on Monday, October 23. Together, the Crawford and Fleming families, along with more than 100 golfers, will once again make a difference through an action-packed day of fun. The event will be followed by a dinner, plus a silent and live auction, all raising funds for this important cause. And for the second year, a tea will also be held simultaneously, featuring boutique vendors, fashions and more.
It would seem that the Santa Clarita Valley has become home to a special kind of migratory bird: the Loose Goose. It made its first appearance last October, and about 2,500 valley residents turned out to witness the festival that followed in its wake. Now, with October nearly upon us, the big bird is circling again, and Loose Goose enthusiasts are starting to lick their lips. They're washing their flutes and cleansing their palettes. They may even be dieting in advance.
A Soroptimist event just isn't an event, it seems, without a dramatic thematic element. Recent memory recalls Hyatt-enclosed trips to Asia, a Shakespearian forest, the 1920s "prohibition" era (Yes, we did put "prohibition" in quotes on purpose. We're not saying that a Hyatt event and "consumption of the great social lubricator" go hand in hand, it's just that... Oh, wait. Yeah, that's what we're saying. Sorry.), and, most recently, an exotic tropical island. The auction luau was a great success that will benefit women and girls in our valley. Congrats to the gals of Sorop, especially Gail Rocco-Mack, the event chair.
If you consider wine and food pairing a task reserved for the rich, famous or stuffy, or worse, a skill only worth developing when an upcoming party has you panicked, you're going about this whole wine thing all wrong. Wine is a beverage to be associated with festivity, pleasure and satisfaction - all qualities worthy of more frequent incorporation into your hectic life. Slow down and taste-test these easy pairings to see what you have been missing.
Feel free to look under the hoods, be dazzled by the chrome, or talk to the owners, but don't even think of kicking any tires at the 11th Annual Oldies and Goodies Classic Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show scheduled for September 9 at Saugus Speedway. Some 500 car owners from all over the Western United States will fill the infield track with their two and four-wheeled artwork. And most of them will have spent more time detailing their cars' tires for the event than you've spent washing or cleaning your ride in the last month. So do all the looking you want, just don't do any touching - with your hands or feet.
SCV tummies have been loudly protesting the lack of gourmet burritos since Chipotle made their big entrance into the Santa Clarita scene at Taste of the Town back in May, then toyed with our emotions and didn't open for business until their benefit for Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Hospital on July 27. Folks like Andy Gallardo and Inside SCV Magazine Publisher Kyle "I eat Chipotle everyday" Crawford helped earn the hospital a hearty $1,900, which will go towards the purchase of a new state-of-the-art CT scanner.
Most of us cannot imagine having our child diagnosed with cancer, yet for over 70 families in Santa Clarita, childhood cancer is a daily reality. For these families, and over 80 others in the surrounding valleys, The Michael Hoefflin Foundation has become a source of comfort and hope. On Saturday, September 9, we can show our support for these families by attending the 13th Annual Evening Under the Stars Gala Dinner & Charity Auction. Along with dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions, this year's event will feature a musical performance by Air Supply.
Every 12 minutes someone dies from breast cancer. There is no better way to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month than to support the third annual Bras for a Cause event sponsored by Soroptimist International of SCV. On Sunday, October 1, join in bringing awareness and raising funds for this important cause while enjoying one of the SCV's most unique events. This year's event will take place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Valencia Country Club. The club's ballroom will be transformed into an art gallery, filled with creations of all kinds.
With all the admiration of superheroes lately, Santa Clarita has a hero of its own which has been marveling crowds for years. It leaps over the word "impossible" with a single bound, creating a new brand of superhero whose identity is no secret. It's Carousel Ranch, a therapeutic horseback riding organization created for children with disabilities. Words like "amazing" and "miraculous" are commonly used to describe the group, which moved to an expansive 10-acre facility in Agua Dulce last year. But to create a comprehensive list of all of its miracle stories would require some of the same magic the ranch uses to overcome obstacles with its students.
Mothers, fathers, grandparents - heck- even groundhogs and flags have a day on the calendar dedicated to them. Kids, however, currently don't have a day reserved in their honor. Now before you get ahead of me and sigh to yourself, "Everyday is kids' day," hear me out.
David Garrard, a quarterback with the Jacksonville Jaguars, knows what it's like to suffer from a debilitating disease: he has battled Crohn's Disease since 2004. However, that didn't stop the football great from playing ball or hanging out with some new friends at The Painted Turtle in Lake Hughes. The nonprofit organization provides overnight camp experiences, free of charge, to kids dealing with a serious illness.
