Electronic Industry Charity Event


Westech Associates has played a central role in managing and promoting EICE, which draws attendance from the local electronics industry. Distributors, representatives, and manufacturers participate to give back to the community - 100% of all profits generated by the event go to Stanford Children’s Hospital and Oakland’s Children’s Hospital.  EICE just celebrated its 50th anniversary


Santa (aka Alex Cox) and Chaz the Elf (aka Alan Smith) were both born and raised Oakland. It was started the Santa/Chaz Holiday Ride Give Away five years ago on a whim. Experiencing the children’s joy and their parents’ appreciation has been amazing. Equally amazing has been the generosity and altruism of our friends, family and even strangers. Through their giving, this event has grown and we have made lifetime memories for hundreds of deserving children
