Valley Fundraiser 2018 graphic

The annual benefit for HSJ Education Programs

This year’s theme is Valley at Play!

Don’t miss our party of the year! Please join History San José for our annual Valley of Heart’s Delight event on Saturday, June 16, 2018.

This year we are inviting you to a night out to play at History Park! We’ll flash back to the era of electromechanical pinball machines and games that revolutionized entertainment right here in the Valley of Heart’s Delight! ‘70s and ’80 attire is encouraged!

Join us to experience live music, fabulous food by Catered Too!, a silent auction, and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play on vintage machines outside, under the stars, in our gaming area.

Proceeds from the event benefit History San José’s award-winning education programs. During the school year our eight unique curriculum-based field trips for grade school classes, combining hands-on activities with required history, language arts and math standards.

Each year more than 20,000 children, teachers and chaperones from Santa Clara Valley and beyond enjoy these memorable and fun learning experiences. All year we work to keep our Valley’s cultural history alive.

Tickets are $175 each. $25 for children 17 years old and under. Children 17 years old or younger must be accompanied by an adult 21 or older. 

$1,750 for a table of 10.
