Prayer Breakfast spotlights testimonies

The 20th annual Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast, “Creating Connections That Count,” is scheduled 7-8:30 a.m. Friday at the Hyatt Regency, 5101 Great America Parkway, Santa Clara.

The event, launched as the Los Altos Prayer Breakfast by a group of Los Altos couples in 1995, features Christian leaders who offer their testimonies on the power of faith and prayer in their lives and as vital elements of a meaningful life.

The Los Altos Prayer Breakfast grew into the Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast. Los Altos resident Skip Vaccarello, who hosted the event and served as master of ceremonies, is chairman of the Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast Leadership Team.

Pat Gelsinger, CEO of VMware, and Reggie Littlejohn, founder of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, are slated to headline this year’s event.

The Silicon Valley Prayer Breakfast is not a fundraiser, nor is it associated with a particular church or denomination.

Tickets are $40 per person, $400 for a table of 10.
