Dinner guests wait for the Top 51 Most Influential People at Robinson Ranch Golf Ranch in Santa Clarita on Thursday.

The Top 51 Most Influential People in the Santa Clarita Valley were honored at a dinner Thursday night at the Robinson Ranch Golf Club.

Sponsored by the Santa Clarita Valley Business Journal, some 170 guests mingled in the dining room for the seventh annual event paying tribute to those in the community whose efforts have played a role in creating a rewarding living experience for residents in the SCV.

Overlooking acres of open land and the greenbelt used for the golf course, live music flowed as the SCV’s most influential people socialized prior to sitting down for a sunset dinner. Present and past winners were in attendance.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael Antonovich, the second most influential on the list of honorees, mixed with guests early in the evening.

Congratulating all 96 nominees, Morris Thomas, publisher of the SCV Business Journal, welcomed the evening’s honorees.
There are so many people that make Santa Clarita what it is that selecting only 51 is nearly impossible, Thomas said.

“This Top 51 event is to honor you folks, the ones who give so much of their lives to make the Santa Clarita Valley a much better place,” he said.

Field deputies for Rep. Buck McKeon, state Sen. Tony Strickland and Antonovich presented certificates to each of the winners, as Thomas called each recipient to the front of the room.

Included among the honorees was Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Pulskamp, who was named as the most influential this year.

EZ Access Self Storage, Robinson Ranch, the YMCA, SCVTV and A-1 Party served as event sponsors.

Throughout the evening guests enjoyed a cocktail hour, sit-down dinner and entertainment from musicians Al Jackson and Tony Campondonico, who recently performed at the SCV Jazz Festival.
