SVL Thank You Dinner 2021!

On Saturday, August 14th our team at SVL had the pleasure of hosting some of our clients and collaborators for our inaugural Thank You Dinner. The dinner was graciously sponsored by our friends at Agave Uptown and chef/owner Octavio Diaz. We enjoyed an amazingly delicious authentic Oaxacan meal which featured Agave Uptown’s signature moles (Mole Negro & Mole Rojo), chicken, carnitas, grilled seasoned vegetables and Octavio’s Caesar’s Salad. We also enjoyed Aldina Vineyard wines and topped off the dinner with Mexican Cookies, flan and Pepito’s Paletas for dessert.


As we prepare to celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary it was important for us to make the space and time to acknowledge and thank our clients and collaborators because they have given us opportunities to earn their business and collaborate in producing/delivering exceptional solutions respectively. We launched the SVL venture as a media company close to a decade ago because we believe in our community, all that we are and all that we can be. We have been delighted to see many organizations from various spaces and industries (tech, corporate, healthcare, government, small business, start-up, and nonprofit) reciprocate by believing in us and giving us the opportunity to earn their business. As a result, about 6 years ago SVL stepped into the creative agency space and we've grown into a complete solutions agency (design, photography, video production, campaign management. PR, branding, and business development) all through the art of authentic and compelling storytelling. 


Regrettably, not all our clients and collaborators were able to attend our inaugural appreciation dinner so we will host another one soon, stay tuned. However, at this time, we would like to thank and acknowledge all our clients, collaborators, and sponsors by listing them below.
