For The Signal

Zonta Club and Soroptimist members and friends filled the Valencia Hills clubhouse recently to introduce Shelley Hann as honoree for Zonta’s 2012 Tribute dinner.

Selected for her “spectacular” contributions to the local community, Hann will be in the spotlight Friday, Nov. 2, at the Odyssey Restaurant.

The evening will include a hosted champagne reception, dinner, live and silent auctions. Tributes will be presented by Don Fleming, Sue Reynolds  and Ed Masterson.

“Well, two out of three isn’t bad!” said Hann.

 Zontian Marilyn Hackett, a professional screenwriter/producer, is creating a Vegas-style extravaganza for the event, in keeping with the evening’s theme: Fabulous Follies in the Zonta Lounge.

Hann is active in the Henry Mayo Newhall Memorial Foundation, and is a past president of the Hospital Guild, where she created the Shelley L. Hann Scholarship Fund for the debutante program.

She has chaired the Guild fashion show for four consecutive years, and is a Home Tour League board member.  

Hann is an active and committed member of Soroptimist  International of Greater Santa Clarita Valley and has produced many events, including multiple fashion shows.  

She created A Day in My Shoes, an event to benefit the Domestic Violence Center. Hann also has been an active member of the Thalian Mental Health Center for more than 22 years, and was active in the Betty Ferguson Foundation.

Hann recently created SCV Women and Men of Honor. Part of the mission is to support the arts, education, health care and mental health care services. It will also help those who suffer from mental health issues relating to eating disorders.

Professionally, Hann followed her aunt and uncle in the beauty business, opening her first salon on Ventura Boulevard in Encino.

She opened Shanelle Salon in the Margo boutique and sold the business five years later. Currently, Hann can be found at Glo Salon in Bridgeport.

Married to attorney G. Marshall Hann in 1990, Hann and her family, including poodles Paris, Bellagio and Mandalay, currently live in Westridge.

“Shelley is passionate about the non-profit mission,” said Zonta President Chris Miller. “Her personal struggles have helped shape Shelley into the generous, compassionate philanthropist who continues to dedicate her time and energy to benefit the Santa Clarita Valley and its residents.”

Individual tickets to the Zonta Tribute dinner, at $100 a plate, can be obtained online at Sponsorship information is available from Cherise Moore at 510-290-3705 or by e-mail at
