Our museums and archives are temporarily closed to support the effort to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Appreciation Night – Huge Success!

January 9, 2020

On Giving Tuesday the San Diego History Center welcomed more than 200 of you, our members, donors, and friends to express our sincere gratitude for your support over the past year. Along with an exceptional multicultural cuisine, guests enjoyed our current exhibitions, a private tour of the Archives and Collections, along with remarks by SDHC’s CEO and President, Bill Lawrence and Chairman of the Board, John Morrell. To conclude the festivities, over a dozen opportunity-drawing prizes were awarded before a brilliant musical performance by Dallas McKinney, a student of Hans Zimmer, and the son of our very own Chief Development Officer, Wendy McKinney. Thank you to all who attended and we look forward to celebrating with everyone again at our 2nd Annual Appreciation Celebration on Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020!
