Ed Masterson and Pam Ingram were recognized Friday at the Santa Clarita Valley Man and Woman of the Year dinner as the guests of honor at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.
Ingram, a Realtor with ReMax of Santa Clarita, was nominated by the Sebastian Velona Foundation, which she’s been involved with for the past two years. She’s also been involved with the Soroptimist International of the Greater Santa Clarita Valley for the past 19 years, the Betty Ferguson Foundation for the last eight year, and the Child and Family Center for the last four.
Masterson, a manager and community liaison for SOS Entertainment, was nominated by Carousel Ranch, SCV Child and Family Center and the WiSH Foundation. He’s been involved with Carousel Ranch for 19 years, the Child and Family Center for the past 10 years and the WiSH Education Foundation for the past five.
The 53rd annual “premier volunteer recognition event” is intended to “honor men and women who have given outstanding volunteer service to the Santa Clarita Valley area,” according to the organization’s website.
The nominees must come from a designated 501c3 community service organization; the volunteer service is defined by long-time community commitment (not work-related); and the service includes, but is not limited to, the years of volunteer service, the type of service and the impact of the service that was provided to multiple local organizations.
Masterson has also been a longtime member of the SCV Chamber of Commerce, the Valley Industry Association, the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Guild and a number of service groups, including Single Mothers Outreach, the Michael Hoefflin Foundation and more.
Ingram similarly has volunteered with numerous nonprofit organizations in the Santa Clarita Valley, including support for Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital, Child and Family Center and the Chamber of Commerce.
