What is it?
#GivingTuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the “reason for the season. It’s a celebration of giving and philanthropy when together, on one day, millions of people demonstrate our common capacity to give.

Be A Part of Gaslamp History

Did you know the cobblestones in our Pocket Park are historic? Many of the stones traveled to San Diego as ship ballast. When they reached San Diego they were re-purposed as street curbs up and down 5th Avenue.When the Street Curbs were replaced the GQHF saved these historic stones. You can be a part of Gaslamp History by buying an engraved brick!
