San Jose Open House Kicks Off the Holiday Season

Your support meant the world to us. Our clients, staff and volunteers are glad to be surrounded by great neighbors and friends. We hope to see plenty more of that community spirit in 2015! Best wishes to everyone, and happy holidays!

AnewAmerica held its first San Jose Business Exposition and Open House on December 3rd, 2014 at its offices. Many people contributed to make the evening both fun and meaningful.



Among our many guests, we were glad to see SBA District Director Mark Quinn, Economic Development Specialist Hannah Kelley-Bell, and Assistant District Director-Economic Development Kathleen Butler-Tom attend to represent the Small Business Administration. We were pleased to see Chief Operating Officer Todd Hansen, The Health Trust, as well as Chief Economist John Lang and work2future Business Services Manager B.J. Sims, City of San Jose.

A hearty thank you goes to all who attended representing Sacred Heart Community Service, Heritage Bank of Commerce, Cathay Bank, Wells Fargo, the Greater San Jose Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the San Jose State University Research Foundation, and Network Remedy.

A big thank you to everyone who came out to support us!



We enjoyed hearing remarks from Mark Quinn, SBA and Betty Bedregal, Betty's Butterflies Daycare.



A big thank you to all our guests! We are grateful to the 10 volunteers who generously gave their time. Their contributions in giving tours to guests, taking pictures and video, and helping with setup and breakdown were essential to the success of the evening.

We were thrilled that our client vendors came out in the rain to participate! It was a pleasure to see and sample their products. Many thanks go to:
