SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 2, 2007 --

Event:       San Jose City Hall Rotunda, a ten-story glass dome designed by
             Richard Meier, will be illuminated in red to raise awareness
             for the American Heart Association's "Go Red For Women"
             initiative.  "Go Red for Women" is a national effort to raise
             women's awareness of their risk for heart disease.

When:        Friday, February 2
             Dusk-Midnight

Where:       San Jose City Hall, 200 E. Santa Clara Street

Background:  "Go Red For Women" is the American Heart Association's
             nationwide movement that celebrates the energy, passion and
             power we have as women to band together and wipe out heart
             disease. Thanks to the participation of millions of people
             across the country, the color red and the red dress have
             become linked with the ability all women have to improve their
             heart health and live stronger, longer lives.

             The San Jose City Hall, designed by Richard Meier Partners, is
             located at 200 East Santa Clara Street between Fourth and
             Sixth Streets in downtown San Jose. The building layout
             includes an 18-story tower on the east side of the site; a
             three story Wing on the west side of the site; a centrally
             located domed rotunda that will reach a height equivalent of
             10 stories; a large plaza opening onto Santa Clara Street
             framed by a curved wall; and one level of 300 underground
             parking spaces.
