Residents can enjoy world famous roller coasters with celebrities while helping a good cause.
LA Kings Team Captain Dustin Brown will be joining TV crime fighters and comedians for The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project’s 10th Anniversary at Magic Mountain on Thursday, May 20.
Supporters of the event will have privileged and private access to many of the park’s rides and roller coasters from 6 to 10 p.m. when Magic Mountain is open only to party guests. In addition, guests will enjoy dinner from 6 to 7 p.m.
Tickets are on sale now for the fundraiser and are priced at $40 for adults and $25 for kids 17 and under.
“As a professional athlete, I realize how lucky I am and my children will be as they grow up,” said Brown. “I had the opportunity to represent my country this winter when I played for the U.S. Olympic Hockey Team, and I believe that fulfilling that responsibility means representing the entire country – the rich and the poor; the fortunate and the less fortunate.
“By getting behind The Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project on this its 10th Anniversary, I want to reach out and help those teenagers who have not been as lucky during their lives. I realize the great work and efforts that the Project makes, and I want to draw attention to that and commend them on a continuing job well done.”
Joining is Eva La Rue from “CSI: Miami” and Alex Kapp Horner from “The New Adventures of Old Christine.”
“We are so excited to celebrate our growth within the community and to be given an opportunity to introduce our organization to people outside Santa Clarita, just makes it that much better,” said Kim Goldman, Executive Director of the Youth Project. “We are honored to have Eva, Alex and Dustin’s support. It’s going to be a great night.”
Proceeds from the event will provide funding to the non-profit agency that works to with kids ages 12 – 18, providing free peer mentoring, support groups, outreach, crisis intervention, and education, at all the junior high and high school campuses in the Santa Clarita Valley area.
During the last 10 years, the SCV Youth Project has provided assistance to more than 27,000 area teens and pre-teens and 5,000 adults.
