2011 silicon valley where change begins dinner
Thank you to everyone who supported our 2011 Summer Search Silicon Valley Where Change Begins dinner! It was a truly inspirational evening and an incredible success: we raised over $260,000 to support our students in Silicon Valley and around the Bay Area.
Videos of our event speakers are now posted online:

Vanessa, a junior at Mt. Eden High School, performed her original song Free, written after completing her summer trip in Colorado with Deer Hill Expeditions.
