See You At VIA’s Black & White Bash!
The VIA BASH has become one of the must-attend business events in the Santa Clarita Valley. On Saturday, October 19 at the Hyatt Regency Valencia, the Valley Industry Association’s signature gala transforms into a ‘Night to Remember,’ inspired by Truman Capote’s infamous social event of 1966.
Capote aspired to create an occasion that brought together a diversity of guests from his little black book to create visual unity using the most severe of color palettes: black and white attire. Guests at VIA’s Black & White BASH will enjoy themed décor while dancing to the high-energy sounds of Crowd Theory Entertainment, a cover band offering a unique and memorable alternative to the conventional live music experience. Black or white attire is encouraged.
As part of the evening’s festivities, VIA honors and showcases businesses within the Santa Clarita Valley by celebrating the diversity and accomplishments of its members. Awards are given to those individuals and members of distinction. The second annual VIA Vision and Inspiration Award will be awarded to a local school in recognition of participation in VIA’s Connecting to Success program.
The evening helps support the VIA Education Foundation’s privately funded Connecting to Success program offering important workplace readiness skills to high school students. This signature program trains more than 2,500 high school students annually from all area high schools.
