Welcome to our November issue! This month, we are celebrating San Diego’s most generous philanthropists (spoiler alert: the work all these do-gooders do is jaw dropping!). Not only is it the month of giving thanks, we were crowned America’s most charitable city a few months back so it feels incredibly fitting. And on the cover: Hollywood sweetheart and San Diego International Film Festival honoree Kathryn Hahn was shot by the incomparable Andrew Eccles (@Eccles). Can’t wait to hear what you think of the issue. Happy reading! 🤗
