Green Chamber of Commerce event in Silicon Valley

Last night the Green Chamber of Commerce helped us celebrate our first year of film production for Silicon Valley -Technology, Art, Green and Sustainability (SVTAGS). The event was held at CreaTV San Jose.

Silver Mountain Winery
hosted their organic wines for tasting, Morocco’s hosted Couscous salad that was yummy and Marin Gourmet hosted with all natural, locally made hummus and olive tapas.

Our guest speakers were Christine Hertzog, author of the Smart Grid Dictionary and Ken Crittendon of the Smart Grid Council of Silicon Valley. We had rave reviews from all that attended and they said that these two are dynamic speakers.

We had four door prizes and winners are as follows: Ron Huch, CEO of WESCOA Engine Technology won the Green Chamber of Commerce membership. Jill Cody won the SVTAGS guest appearance on the ½ hour show. Sandy Desch won the CreaTV San Jose annual membership. Cesar Plata won the Eco Baskets that included vintage wine glasses, CFL’s and a set of eco-friendly bamboo hot pads and drink coaster.

A big thank you to everyone that has helped to produce the television show this year and that helped set up last nights event!
