The six honorees, three couples, have already been notified: Arif and Pam Halaby, Michael and Mary Delorenzo and Scott and Vanessa Wilk.
The ninth annual recognition dinner will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Valencia at 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 17.
The goal of the award is to recognize those in the Santa Clarita Valley who have made an impact on local youth or the community as a whole, said Ransom Boynton, Bill Hart District executive.
The Halabys have been long-time scouters, Boynton said.
Arif Halaby is the founder and CEO of Total Financial Solutions in Newhall, which offers financial advice, retirement planning, debt counseling and a variety of seminars.
Scott Wilk, state assemblyman for the 38th District, and his wife Vanessa have lived in the Santa Clarita Valley for years.
Boynton said that the Bill Hart District is happy to have the support of the Wilks.
Michael and Mary Delorenzo are owners of Santa Clarita Studios, a full service, independent studio featuring 10 sound stages, production center and screening room.
Boynton praised the Delorenzos’ efforts to keep the film industry in the SCV.
“They have been bringing a lot of good commerce to our valley for a number of years,” he said.
Sue Reynolds of the William S. Hart Union High School District will emcee the event.
Tickets are $150 per person and a number of sponsorship opportunities are available.
“All of the proceeds from this event will be donated directly to the scouting organizations in the Santa Clarita Valley,” Boynton said.
