Celebrate the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s
40th Anniversary!

On Friday evening, July 28, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group will celebrate our first 40 years of making a positive, proactive impact on our region, state and nation . . . while looking forward to our next 40 years.

It was July of 1977 when our Founder, David Packard, brought together 32 other Valley visionaries and created the Leadership Group.  We believe it’s worth celebrating – and celebrating with style.  We are encouraging our guests to bring spouses/significant others, as our evening will be “short on formal program” and “long on fun.”

With a theme of “Winning Together,” we welcome your presence  to help us celebrate these wins. Whether it is recent successes – “Winning Together” – like the $647 million in federal funds for Caltrain electrification, last November’s transportation sales tax initiatives (Measure B in Santa Clara County & Measure D in Santa Cruz County), or last June’s Measure AA to restore the San Francisco Bay, our first 40 years have made a positive impact on our economy and quality of life. Come join the celebration.

We have limited sponsorship opportunities available for the 40th Anniversary Gala. Please contact Shannon Johnson, Director, Events at [email protected] or (408)453-4753.

It is not within our policy to provide refunds, but will make substitutions to the ticket holder upon request.
