Thank you to everyone who made the fourth annual Celebration Under the Dome a night of such endless possibilities. The generosity of 450 guests, 59 members of our Host Committee and our 30 corporate Sponsors, raised more than $500,000 to support educational and cultural programs and new technology at 36 San Diego Public Library locations. A special thank you to Honorary Chairs Joan and Irwin Jacobs and Audrey Geisel and our Title Sponsor Qualcomm.

We will share event photos in the coming days.

Mark your calendars! 

The fifth annual Celebration Under the Dome will be  Saturday, October 13, 2018.
