The Santa Clarita community will once again will be asked for their support for great non-profits, while having a great time. This year’s event is sure to be our best. This is founder Nicole Stinson’s 7th successful year, whom will be working hard and diligently to bring in sponsors, donations with her co-chair Steve Portaro to help make the event go off without a hitch. The upcoming event will be benefiting two amazing shelters in our area that are saving the lives of animals, Shelter Hope Pet Shop and St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary/Lange Foundation. Steve Portaro, Co-Chair commented, “Our goal has no cap and we are benefiting two charities this year, so we need twice the donation power to help both amazing causes with their continued success.”
