The heart of The Thursday Club is inspiring women of all ages who share the gift of giving.
For over 100 years our members have combined social activities with fundraisers and volunteer commitments to benefit civic and benevolent projects in Balboa Park and the San Diego community.
The Thursday Club was formed in 1921 when four young women proposed the beginnings of a club that would combine social activities with worthwhile civic and benevolent projects. It wasn’t until 1927, when The Thursday Club was granted the deed to a large parcel of land on a choice spot in the Sunset Cliffs area of Point Loma by Mr. John Mills of Pantages-Mills-Shreve Company, that they would realize their dream of having a clubhouse to call their own. Today, the clubhouse is renowned as a beautiful San Diego wedding and event venue with timeless Spanish architecture and expansive ocean views.
Over the past 100 years, The Thursday Club has grown and thrived, but the core values and traditions remain the same. In fulfillment of our founding members’ vision, The Thursday Club continues to participate in fundraising activities as well as service projects, both large and small. Certainly the most well-known is the Annual Rummage Sale held in Balboa Park every spring, recognized as the best bargain shopping experience in all of San Diego. This annual sale offers half of its proceeds to various entities within Balboa Park, the crown jewel of San Diego. The remaining funds raised at the Rummage Sale are granted to San Diego community philanthropies. The Thursday Club is proud to partner with so many well deserving charities to benefit all of San Diego.
