Your support transforms lives

The fifth annual Celebration Under the Dome event, Alchemy: A Magical Evening of Transformation was truly a magical evening! Thank you to Honorary Co-Chairs Joan and Irwin Jacobs and Audrey Geisel, Hosts, Sponsors, and Event Chair Leslie Devaney and Event Co-Chair Marlee Ehrenfeld for their support of this event. We were able to enjoy an evening of magic, entertainment, extraordinary cuisine and craft cocktails paired with experiences that illustrate firsthand the Library’s life-enriching programs. Your generosity helped us achieve our event goals and allow the Library Foundation to support programs that transform the lives of San Diegans. Thank you.
