Silicon Valley San Jose Business Journal

Silicon Valley Business Journal

From the February 13, 1998 print edition

Maybe he'll leave his heart here this time The splashy Silicon Valley Charity Ball has booked crooner Tony Bennett to perform at this year's event, set for April 18 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Mr. Bennett is coming not only to delight the several thousand attendees, each of whom will plunk down up to $1,000 to participate in the valley's largest single fund-raising event. This year's theme is "Silicon Valley takes a byte out of the Big Apple." Besides being a lavish fund raiser, the charity ball also garners attention for its colorful invitations, which for the past few years have been designed by Yamaguma & Associates Inc. of San Jose.

Steve Yamaguma has designed this year's invite to feature a New York theme. He wouldn't give specifics, but said people will begin receiving the invitations in the mail in about three weeks.

MACK THE SHARK Market Street, between Post and San Fernando streets OK, having a shark play ''Mack the Knife,'' with its famous shark lyric, is dumb, dumb, dumb. But Yamaguma & Associates, which crafted this shark for the sponsoring San Jose Jazz Society, has made what is, to my knowledge, the only shark anywhere you can play music on. Follow the numbers on the side and whack the corresponding xylophone key on its back and Bobby Darin will have nothing on you.
