This Thursday is the night! We hope you are as excited as we are. We want to make sure all of our guests have a great evening so we’ve prepared some important information about the event.

Location: The gala will take place in the ballroom of the Wyndham San Diego Bayside. Please click here for directions to and from the hotel.

Parking: Parking is available on-site for $10. If on-site lot is full, there is an off-site parking lot for $5 approximately one block away (click here for a map). Shuttles will be transporting off-site parkers to the hotel at 6:00, 6:15, and 6:30 and from the hotel at 8:45, 9:00, and 9:15. Street parking after 6pm is free.

Silent Auction: We will be auctioning off some great items at discounted prices throughout the night including tickets to local museums, dinners with elected officials, and gift cards to some of San Diego’s best restaurants! Don’t forget to bring cash, checks, or a credit card to bid. Every cent goes to supporting CPI’s work.
