Did you remember to “fall” back before you went to bed last night and set your clock back an hour? If you forgot you might find yourself showing up an hour early to today’s events, which include the Santa Clarita Marathon and Sunset in the Vineyard.

Rescues on the Runway

The fourth annual Rescues on the Runway to benefit the rescue of shelter animals facing euthanasia will be held Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Hyatt Regency Valencia.

The event begins with a holiday boutique that is open to the public from 3 to 8 p.m.. there is no admission fee for the boutique.

At 4 p.m., the public is invited to meet animal rescues that are up for adoption. At 6 p.m., the benefit dinner and celebrity catwalk and doggie beauty contest (with prizes awarded) will be held. Lassie is scheduled to appear as the guest star of the event.
