More than 750 people put on their best “Born To Be Wild” attitudes and attire Saturday night at the 39th annual SCV Boys and Girls Club benefit auction.
The auction, which was held in the grassy amphitheater at Mann BioMedical Park, featured fabulous live auction items consisting of: exciting trips, fancy jewelry, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, and a car provided by Valencia Acura.
Weekend getaways, entertainment, dining, home improvement and other accessories were available through hundreds of bid boards.
The guests enjoyed an evening under the stars listening to live music from Lee & The Real Deal while savoring gourmet cuisine from Salt Creek Grille and Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Company.
Master of Ceremonies Rick Chambers introduced guests to auctioneer Mark Schenfel, who quickly worked the crowd into a bidding frenzy.
Before Schenfel could auction anything off, however, Mark Justice and Maria Green celebrated the fact that they held a winning opportunity drawing ticket and got to choose any live auction item, which would be taken out of the bidding. Their pick was the Lakers VIP fan package, valued at $10,000.
A truly moving moment happened as guests at the event were presented with a video projection of parents talking about their struggles with their children and their gratitude for the club while a group club members were on the stage.
All the proceeds from this auction will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley Foundation. For more information please visit their website, www.scvbgc.org.
