Last night's mixer at the Acerogami Bar, or as the locals call it, "Glass House Bar", was a huge success. Sponsored by the Pomona Chamber of Commerce and Valley Vista Services the downtown was alive with the who's who of Pomona. Guests included, among the many dignitaries; Assemblywoman Norma Torres, Mayor Elliott Rothman, Councilmembers Atchley, Lantz, Soto, and Saunders. Chamber president Ricardo Delgado, Executive Director Frank Garcia,Board members Andre Robinson and Adrianna Robledo, DPOA President Carolyn Hemming, Board members Cathy Tessier, David Armstrong, Don Church, Jason Abboud, just to name a few.
Sakura Ichi provided the catering with plenty of food to go around. The ambiance is subtle elegance with steel scultures, handmade tables, stools and bar, made of steel. A full wall is dedicated to a masterful mural by artist Tom Pathe.
The night's event was well attended by an estimated 200 people. A great turnout!
The host and proprieter, Perry Tollett, unfortunately was ill and couldn't attend his own party. The buzz was so positive that Perry will be seeing many of these people back for a long time to come.
