RECORD NIGHT AT MONTALVO: The allure of Paris — even if it was just re-imagined in the hills above Saratoga — created a generous atmosphere at the Montalvo Arts Center‘s biennial fundraiser June 16. “Moulin Montalvo: A Gala Night in Montmartre” — with strolling musicians, acrobats and can-can dancers entertaining the black-tie crowd — raised $600,000 for Montalvo’s artistic and educational programs. Gala co-chairs Marcia Hansen, Deborah Stolle and Sydene Kober — along with committee members Gretchen DiNapoli, Sue Mueller, Debbie Gong-Guy and Gayla Wood — put together quite an evening that included dinner by Le Papillon, French wines and Tattinger Champagne and an entertaining live auction led by “auctiontainer” Letitia Frye.

Organized by the Fremont Chamber of Commerce in 1983 at the Fremont Hub, the Fremont Festival of the Arts now touts itself as the largest free outdoor art fest west of the Mississippi River. Organizers estimated 390,000 people attended last weekend. “It’s a huge process,” said Fremont Mayor Bill Harrison. “The Chamber of Commerce does an awesome job and the city loves teaming up with them to make the festival a success.”. A large part of the festival’s success is the money it raises. Since its inception, the festival has generated almost $11 million for local nonprofit organizations.

The son of a math professor, he talks about algorithms, data analysis and his agency’s ability to guide clients to surprising deals in hot neighborhood pockets with high projected appreciation. His agency, which he likens to a startup, aims to be a one-stop shop, with in-house consultants on construction and renovation, interior design, estate planning and tax law. Focused on the valley’s core — Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Atherton, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Mountain View — he discusses preparations for a northward expansion through the Peninsula and eventually on to San Francisco as if it were a military campaign.
