The San Diego Union-Tribune Gaslamp Gala

presented by GBOD Hospitality Group

October 4, 2018 | 401 K Street, San Diego, CA 92101

 

The Gaslamp Quarter Association is pulling out all the stops to celebrate the Historic Heart of San Diego this October 4th at The San Diego Union-Tribune Gaslamp Gala presented by GBOD Hospitality Group! This celebration will be a  decadent evening of exquisite cuisines, inspired libations, unique fundraising, and live music set under the stars in the center of Fifth Avenue. Twinkling lights, and hanging florals, will adorn the sky as the sun sets on ornately decorated tables set with fine china for a three-course meal with wine and craft beer pairings. It is not every day that we can shut down the streets of the Gaslamp Quarter to dine, drink, and dance with abandon – now is our chance!

The San Diego Union Tribune Gaslamp  Gala presented by GBOD Hospitality Group begins at 5:30pm with a hosted reception at the Gaslamp Quarter Hilton Hotel, with a silent auction of incredible auction packages along with appetizer selections from 10 Gaslamp Quarter eateries and beverage service.

Once the silent auction wraps up, guests will descend to Fifth Avenue for an evening to remember. Dinner guests not only get to feast on spectacular menu items, or participate in a live auction but can make their way to the dance floor flanked by LED screens, live music and a raised stage.

The proceeds from the Gaslamp Gala auction will benefit the Gaslamp Quarter Association, the official non-profit 501(c)6 trade organization of the Gaslamp Quarter, as well as a new iconic Gaslamp Archway to be built on the north end of the district. Your donation will help to raise crucial funds needed for the ongoing development of promotional programming and capital improvements for the Gaslamp Quarter. Your contributions are wisely invested and leveraged to continue promoting and enhancing our amazing historic district! Don’t miss this annual Gala!
