Thursday: Venture capital pioneers to be honored

 

Venture capital pioneers William K. Bowes Jr., Reid W. Dennis, William H. Draper and F.P. "Pitch" Johnson will be honored Thursday, Nov. 21, by the San Mateo County Historical Association.

They will be recognized for their groundbreaking work in venture capital that changed the economy. The occasion is a 6 p.m. dinner at the Hotel Sofitel in Redwood Shores.

The evening will include a panel discussion by the four honored guests with venture capitalist George McCown as moderator.

Past "history maker" recipients include the Lane family, Intel founder Gordon Moore, Dr. Thomas Fogarty, and baseball legend Willie Mays.

The annual dinner is a fundraiser for the operation of the Historical Association's three museums: the San Mateo County History Museum in Redwood City, the Woodside Store near Huddart Park, and the Sanchez Adobe in Pacifica.

Tickets to the dinner are $175 per person. For more information, call the development department of the San Mateo County Historical Association, 299-0104.
