Nearly 100 years ago, a volunteer group of workers and manufacturers in the garment industry gathered funds to purchase the land on which City of Hope now exists. They were humanitarians whose legacy and vision continue to this day in the form of industry partnerships. Unique among philanthropies, these partnerships are composed of companies and supporters united by industry and the drive to advance City of Hope’s mission to bring new hope to patients everywhere. By spearheading successful fundraising campaigns on local, regional and national levels, these groups have raised hundreds of millions of dollars to support and enhance the research, treatment and education programs that have made City of Hope a nationwide leader.
In 1981, the San Diego Construction Industries Alliance was formed to establish a legacy of giving in the San Diego community by a group of compassionate and generous industry leaders. Through a series of fundraising events, which culminates with an annual Spirit of Life® celebration, this group has raised millions of dollars for City of Hope.
City of Hope salutes the San Diego Construction Industries Alliance for its quarter-century plus years of support. Congratulations for helping us to save countless lives and restore hopeful dreams.
