Valley of Heart’s Delight Fundraiser: Cocktails with “Sal”

June 18 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The annual benefit for HSJ Programs

We are delighted to announce that this years’ 2020 Valley of Heart’s Delight honoree with be our very own Sal Pizarro, long time columnist of the Mercury News, cocktail connoisseur, and a huge supporter of promoting San Jose’s history. Each year we welcome more than 300 guests to this special event — our most important fundraiser of the year — where we raise funds critical to supporting all of History San Jose’s programs.

Our theme this year will be the Roaring Twenties! We’ll flashback to an era of jazz, flappers, the Charleston, bathtub gin, and flashbulbs — and the golden age of newspapers. Guests will enjoy live jazz by Hellafitzgerald, fabulous food by Tony Caters, quality cocktails by Haberdasher and a live auction under the stars. This years’ Valley of Heart’s Delight: Cocktails with “Sal” will take place on Thursday, June 18, 2020, 5:30-9:30pm at History Park and we hope to see you there!
