Iron-Chef® style team building event rewards commitment to youth programs in East Palo Alto

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Dec. 9, 2011- Applied Micro Circuits Corporation (NASDAQ:AMCC), or AppliedMicro, hosted a holiday dinner and toy drive Thursday for more than 100 members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula. More than 200 company employees donated their time and effort to prepare the meals in the company's cafeteria and served them to club members and their families as a gesture of community giving and seasonal spirit. Each child also visited with Santa Claus and came away with a present.

"AppliedMicro extended its relationship with the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula by hosting this festive holiday dinner and gift gala as a way of heralding the spirit of the season," said Paramesh Gopi, President and CEO of AppliedMicro. "The Boys and Girls Clubs provide important services and activities for underserved children to help them reach their full potential. By hosting this holiday meal, our company hopes to support the organization's efforts by rewarding those children who have committed themselves to the clubs' programs. Our company has partnered with Boys and Girls Clubs in the past and this event shows our continued commitment to this very fine organization."

Company employees formed teams that prepared healthy vegan meals at its Sunnyvale offices and invited members of the Boys and Girls Clubs to be their guests for dinner, a holiday toy donation drive and arts and crafts activities. The Club's members served as judges of the food and voted on their favorite dishes, earning one lucky team the company's "Iron-Chef" title.

The holiday dinner was held instead of the company's annual holiday party. Two years ago teams of employees at the company built and donated bicycles to the children of the Club. AppliedMicro donated all of the food, supplies, professional help and manpower needed to host this year's event.

"The hospitality that AppliedMicro offered us for this festive holiday dinner was truly heartwarming," said Zareen Kasad, Director of Strategic Partnerships for Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula. "We've worked with the company in the past and the children have responded positively to the support they have received. Our goal is to inspire youth to attain the life skills and attitude they need to thrive. Part of that comes through having good role models and AppliedMicro demonstrated this by opening its doors to our members and donating the time and energy to put on this very this special feast."

AppliedMicro enlisted the services of Parties That Cook to lead the team building, meal planning and cooking activities for the holiday feast. The organization stages cooking parties and corporate team building events throughout the Bay Area and enlists highly trained culinary professionals to direct the Iron-Chef style event where colleagues are divided into teams and compete in a timed competition. With a basic reference book to guide them, groups have one hour to develop and prepare an entrée to present to a panel of judges.

"We were delighted to be a part of the holiday meal festivities of AppliedMicro and the Boys and Girls Clubs," said Rosie Monson, Director of Event and Office Operations for Parties That Cook. "This was a great way to combine holiday cheer with an exercise that brings people together to benefit youth programs."
