SOHO to celebrate 35th annual People In Preservation Awards May 18

SOHOSAN DIEGO, Calif. – Save Our Heritage Organisation (SOHO) will celebrate its 35th annual People In Preservation Awards during National Preservation Month with ceremonies May 18 at the historic Marston House formal gardens. The winners’ accomplishments range from restoring downtown’s iconic Horton Plaza Park and its signature Irving Gill Fountain to restoring and adapting the decrepit, long vacant Hotel Churchill for affordable housing, and restoring a rare surviving house built by the San Diego Cable Railway Company to promote growth in the 1880s.

Individuals, couples, nonprofit groups, agencies and organizations will be saluted for ten outstanding preservation projects or exceptional service in San Diego, National City, and Escondido. The awards are for architectural restoration and renovation; creative, adaptive reuse of historic buildings; time-honored craftsmanship; and disseminating preservation news and historic documents through print and electronic media.
The People In Preservation Awards, the most prestigious of their kind in this region, will be presented May 18 from 4 to 6:30pm at the Marston House formal gardens, 3525 Seventh Avenue. This festive event begins with a champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception, followed by the awards ceremony. Tickets are available in advance only and typically sell out. The cost is $55 per person ($45 for SOHO members). Tickets may be purchased online at www.SOHOsandiego.org or by calling (619) 297-9327.
