On May 12, Synaptics’ parking lot near the intersection of Scott Blvd and San Tomas Expressway, was anything but quiet. Laughter and music intertwined with the smell of a variety of foods in parking lot to support the Veterans Support Services Agency (VSSA).
The Food Truck Fundraiser featured Twisted Chill (soft-serve and ice cream), Jo’ on the GO (mobile espresso and smoothies), Soulnese (Asian soul food), MoGo BBQ (Korean BBQ), Babaloo (Cuban), MoBowl (rice bowls), Mayo & Mustard (sandwiches), Tacos de Los Altos (Mexican) and Road Dogs (hotdogs). The VSSA event also offered a wide-variety of activities including carnival games, arts and crafts booths in addition to live music. The Touch Tones, a band composed of several Synaptics employees, provided the music.
Ten percent of the proceeds from the food sales were donated to VSSA and over $1,500 was raised.
VSSA will host its second annual Silicon Valley Veterans Ball at the San Jose Garden Hotel on September 15. For additional information on VSSA visit www.vssainc.org.
