The City Club’s unique “Gifts to the City” event is their annual holiday program. Community members graciously offer their virtual “gifts” to the city. These gifts may be serious, offbeat, ironic, amusing, inspiring, entertaining, and/or challenging. The speakers from various walks of life explain what they would give if they had the power to do so, and why they are making the gift.
