A packed house at Brentwood’s Tavern, over $30,000 raised on behalf of the Boys and Girls Club of Santa Monica, and the biggest night in LA Tech.  That was the ThursdayNights 2014 Holiday Gala in a nutshell.

The impressive cast of investors, industry pros and entrepreneurs made talk of innovation and the future of technology vibrant. Representatives from all sectors sipped cocktails from the swank bar.
