The Santa Clarita Valley Escrow Association (SCVEA) is proud to announce it will be hosting the 4th Annual Grill Master event at Wolf Creek Brewery on April 15, with proceeds benefiting The Youth Project. For the last three years Gino Fronti (Skyline Homes), Jim Lombardi (Federal Escrow) and Steve Corn (Newhall Escrow) have been producing this fun filled event for friends, family and clients but in 2016 the SCVEA decided to partner to make it a fundraising event and in doing so, they raised more than $10,000 to support their charity of choice, The Youth Project. “The Santa Clarita Valley Escrow Association is proud to get behind such a worthwhile cause. For the last few years we have focused our efforts on helping this organization; I am grateful that my colleagues see the same value in the Youth Project that Jim and I do,” shared Anita Lombardi, owner of Federal Escrow Inc., and Youth Project Board Member. “As an executive director there is nothing I love more than hearing someone say ‘Hey, we want to host a charity event for your organization, all you have to do is show up!’ The support and excitement around this event has been tremendous and I am so appreciative. I can finally saw we are really looking forward to tax day this year!” says Kim Goldman, Executive Director, The Youth Project. Music will be provided by DJ TY, as guests enjoy a hearty plate of food with award winning chicken, sausage and Chef’s Choice of Beef and amazing items for bid in the silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.
