Decked out in their finest, the group gathered on the VIP area, before dining at the track’s luxurious Chandelier Room for dinner and entertainment from Dan Olivo and his band.This year’s theme was “Hope Wins,” and honored jockey Victor Espinoza as its 2015 Distinguished Community Honoree. Much to the glee of the event organizers. Espinoza came to the event directly from a studio where was taping a segment of “Dancing with the Stars.”Espinoza is a longtime visitor to the City of Hope in Duarte. As he told the Society, “I started donating because I see kids with cancer, and it just a horrible thing to have to go through. I can’t imagine the parents, how they feel, too. Not just the kids, but the parents, and the entire family.”The American Cancer Society is the largest non-profit cancer-fighting organization in the world. As their website states, “Nearly three million Society volunteers work to conquer cancer and create a work with more birthdays, by helping provide free programs and services to cancer patients across the nation.”This year’s event was chaired by Mary Bowser and Naomi Farley.

SANTA BARBARA – After 90 minutes and 20 minutes of overtime, Cal State Northridge and host UC Santa Barbara settled nothing. The highly anticipated Big West Conference showdown between the rival programs finished deadlocked 2-2 after two overtimes. But there was plenty of action to keep the 2,217 in attendance at Harder Stadium interested from the opening whistle. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 CSUN opened the scoring in the sixth minute when Canel and Sean Franklin worked well down the right sideline bringing the ball up field. Franklin sent a cross in to the penalty box, Willy Sims touched a pass to Paladini, who gained control and beat Renish with a low shot to the far post. The physical play began shortly after the score, and CSUN ended up losing Sims – its leading scorer – for the game after he was injured in the eighth minute. The teams combined for 22 fouls and two yellow cards in the 45 minutes. Trailing 1-0 entering the second half, UCSB tied the game when Byrne sent a free kick in the direction of Jeff Murphy, who headed in the equalizer in the 48th minute. Sean Ceglinsky, (818) 713-3607 CSUN (6-2-2, 2-0-1 Big West) took the lead in the 64th minute. Daniel Paladini took a free kick, sending a curling ball into the penalty area. Alec De Mattos fended off two defenders, redirected the pass to Ryan Roffi, who scored past Gauchos goalkeeper Kyle Renish to give the Matadors a 2-1 advantage. The Gauchos (6-2-2, 3-0-1), ranked No. 14 in the most recent College Soccer News poll, answered when Bryan Byrne scored on a penalty kick with less than four minutes remaining in regulation. Then Renish came up with perhaps the biggest play of the game. The Hart High of Newhall graduate made a diving save to his left on a Taylor Canel penalty shot with 1:16 left to force overtime.
