All models and the clothing and shoes they showcased looked terrific. A silent auction benefited San Jose Jazz, and the live music and stunning views from the Capital Club created an unforgettable atmosphere. Complimentary premium wines, beer, cocktails and appetizers were provided by local businesses and generously sponsored byÿAlcario and Carmen Castellano. Vicki Thompson,ÿ Silicon Valley Business Journalÿ photographer, wrote about the event and captured it in aÿ slideshow. For a first-hand account from a celebrity bartender at the event and a San Jose Mercury News columnist,ÿSal Pizzaro, read his story in San Jose Mercury News,ÿ Silicon Valley community leaders look sharp for San Jose Jazz. Thank you to San Jose Jazz, distinguished guests, sponsors and all participants for keeping the rich tradition of jazz alive in San Jose. We at Mezlan are proud to have been part of the event and its worthy cause. The San Jose Jazz Winter Fest is just around the corner, and we're very much looking forward to seeing everyone there.
