One of the most rewarding duties of being named SCV Man and Woman of the Year is the chance to bestow cash donations on favorite charities.

This year's 2008 Man and Woman of the Year, Carl Goldman and Judy Penman, recently performed this honor during a brief ceremony held at the Westfield Valencia Town Center.

The SCV Man and Woman of the Year presented checks totaling $4,000 to their favorite local charities.
The honorees were each able to donate $2,000 to the charities of their choice.

Penman donated $1,000 to the Zonta Club of SCV, and $1,000 to the Circle of Hope.

"I am going to earmark the Zonta donation specifically for the Virginia Wrage Scholarship Fund," said Penman. "This way it stays in our community."

Carl Goldman divided his $2,000 among the four organizations who nominated him for Man of the Year award.

The groups to benefit included: $500 to the Santa Clarita Disaster Coalition, $500 to The SCV Theatre Project, $500 to the Zonta Club of Santa Clarita and $500 to the Providence Holy Cross Foundation.
The $4,000 distributed represents the proceeds raised at the 2008 SCV Man & Woman of the Year Awards Banquet held at the Hyatt Valencia in May.

In the past 10 years the SCV Man and Woman of the Year Event has donated $28,000 to area nonprofits.
As current year's honorees, Carl Goldman and Judy Penman will chair the the 2009 SCV Man and Woman of the Year event.

Nominations will be sought beginning in January, and the award winners will be announced at the annual awards dinner in May. Voting is done by past recipients of the award.
