An abundance of olives at the Mission

Mission San Jose Chamber of Commerce presents the 14th annual Olive Festival Ð the premier event in the Mission San Jose District Ð on Saturday and Sunday, October 3 and 4 at the Dominican Grounds behind the historic Old Mission San Jose museum. This year the festival will be expanded to a full weekend, with at least 25 vendors offering olive oil, honey and a wide variety of other items. Local bands and artists such as Dixie Dominus, Georgi and the Rough Week, Ron Thompson, Incendio and Tempest will provide entertainment on both days. Other activities include games, arts and crafts, and projects at the Kids Booth, as well as raffle prizes donated by local businesses. Food trucks will be onsite to tickle your taste buds, and a beer garden will offer brews.

Adding olives and olive oil to your diet has many health benefits. The olive fruit produces oil, which is commonly used in cooking, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and soaps. According to the Mayo Clinic, olive oil is a common source of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs), considered good fats and may help lower the risk of heart disease. MUFAs may help lower your cholesterol, normalize blood clotting, and benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control.

Manufacturers assemble once again for MFG Day

Manufacturing-based companies all over the East Bay are opening their doors and inviting the public in as the fourth annual Manufacturing Day (MFG Day) kicks off Friday, October 2.

MFG Days goals are simple Ð to educate students and the local community about how the manufacturing industry operates today and dispel popular misconceptions about it. The Rockford, Illinois, based Fabricators & Manufacturers Association (FMA) is one of many organizations that help coordinate MFG Day across North America. Patricia Lee, FMAs director of marketing, is excited for this years slate of events, especially the amount happening in the East Bay. Fremont is on fire this year! I was blown away by the number of events, Lee said, adding, Its really important for (people) to see what happens in these facilities that contribute to the economy. MFG Day will indeed have a huge presence here, with a total of 15 events scheduled in Fremont and two in San Leandro.

The modern manufacturing industry is no longer simply conveyor belts and people in safety gear. It has evolved and become multifaceted, a fact that is very apparent in the types of manufacturers that have made the East Bay their home.

St. Rose Hospital hosts An Evening in Motown

St. Rose Hospital Foundation is excited to invite the community to its 27th annual Spectacular on October 3 to support the independent, community hospital.

St. Roses roots began more than 60 years ago, in 1953, when Hayward residents began a hospital building fund; a local Catholic priest then contacted the Sisters of St. Joseph Wichita, Kansas, asking them to sponsor a hospital in Hayward. With the Sisters sponsorship through Via Christi Health System, the hospital opened its doors on October 22, 1962. However, in 2005, St. Rose separated from Via Christi, becoming an independent, nonprofit hospital.

The St. Rose Hospital Foundation was created in 1977 to manage donations and gifts to the hospital. Since its launch, the Foundation has raised over 18 million dollars at its annual events, such as A Taste of Style, Charity Golf Classic, and The Spectacular, the FoundationÕs premier black tie event. This years Spectacular theme is An Evening in Motown, and the Foundation is ready for some oldies fun.

So far, over 600 guests are attending this year, and the Foundation expects the number to grow as the event inches closer. There will be a silent and live auction, and Bay Area local band Groove Doctors will be performing Motown hits and more. As in Spectaculars before, expect delicious food and drinks, this year provided by Oakland-based caterer Splurge. Guests have the option of a double cut filet, the Splurge cioppino, or wild mushroom risotto. The Spectacular was voted Classic Party Rentals Most Fabulous Event and awarded $10,000 in 2010 Ð come see how the event has grown even more fabulous over the years.
