MVEF is delighted to announce our participating restaurants for this year's Taste of Mountain View  Spring Gala & Auction: 


The Gala will be held March 21, from 6:30 to 11:00 with a pre-gala champagne reception from 5:30-6:30 pm. The champagne reception features Professor Bruce McCandliss, PhD, of Stanford's Graduate School of Education, speaking on "Learning Minds and Changing Brains: The Journey from Pre-K to Puberty."  Dr. McCandliss leads a team of scientists who are all involved in the growing field of educational neuroscience. His research focuses on three transformations in cognitive development that are guided by educational experience: executive function, literacy, and numerical cognition.
