Best Of San Diego 2012 — People
People On The Pulse
When celebrating the best of San Diego, let us also tip our hats to the people who speak to us on the nightly news and over the airwaves, as well as leaders in business, philanthropy, the nonprofit world, and other sectors essential to San Diego living. Cheers to those who make it their job to keep us informed, and are constantly working to ensure that San Diego is the best place in which to live and work. Take Conrad Prebys, for instance, this year’s readers’ favorite philanthropist, whose generosity has included gifts to the Boys & Girls Clubs, The Old Globe, UCSD Music Center, the La Jolla Music Society, Sanford/Burnham Institute, the Salk Institute, and San Diego Hospice.
Congratulations to this year's Readers' Choice Best of San Diego winners!
