The Party
Joan and Irwin Jacobs opened their stunning, art-filled home in La Jolla for an evening of philanthropic gratitude.

The Highlights
The cocktail reception, with an intimate piano concert that set the evening’s tone, celebrated the generosity of some of San Diego’s most philanthropic members of the Jewish community. More than 100 were honored and given a tour of the Jacobses’ immense art collection, which includes standout pieces by George Segal and Chuck Close. The family are important supporters of San Diego’s vibrant arts scene, be it La Jolla Playhouse or MCASD. One of the buildings of the contemporary museum’s downtown campus is named the Jacobs Building in honor of their generous patronage.

The Scene
