The Launch of ChicMeetsGeek™

On November 5, 2009, ChicMeetsGeek™ presented the San Francisco Opera Bravo Club’s fall celebration at the ultra-chic geek Automattic Lounge at Pier 38 in San Francisco. Over 350 attendees enjoyed beautiful views of the Bay, hosted cocktails, appetizers, and a unique opportunity to mix and mingle with the movers and shakers from both the chic and geek crowds of San Francisco Opera and Silicon Valley tech.

The geek speakers that attended were:

The chic speakers were:

There were a variety of entertainment that evening that had the guests tapping their foot and their mouths dropped in awe. The geek and chic speakers kicked off the program by inspiring the audience with their background and accomplishments. Things got a little spicy when attendees were dancing to the tunes of the chic jazz performance by Terry Disley and his band. Soon after, a salsa routine was performed by Lina Egutkina and Edwin Banegas, two geeks in the tech industry. Their seductive moves mesmerized the audience. Photographers and video bloggers flashed their lights left and right. The night couldn’t get any better until a stunning wrap-up performance by Randi Zuckerberg, the honorary chic geek guest of the evening, and her a cappella group, the Curious Blend, sang beautiful tunes that left the attendees smiling by the end of the night.

The event was a huge success with about a 100 out of 350 young professionals registered to become a San Francisco Opera Bravo member. In addition, we raised thousands of dollars that evening. Most of the attendees at the event have never attended a SF Opera performance or a Bravo social gathering. As a result of ChicMeetsGeek™, the SF Opera Bravo Club, the non-profit beneficiary of the event, reached an audience it was unable to do so before.

Below are a few photos taken at the November 5th launch event by the talented photographer Maurice Ramirez.
