For more than 178 years, The Baltimore Sun has provided this community with trusted news coverage, investigative journalism and thoughtful debate and commentary. We also have proudly served as a strong and committed business leader in the Baltimore region. It is our leadership role that initiated this special publication.
Like others in Baltimore, we watched with great concern during the recent unrest in the city. The Sun has provided unprecedented news coverage of the events and offered opinions from throughout the community.
As a corporate citizen, we also believe in helping to identify solutions in building a better Baltimore. We know this will take time, and we all must play a part. As a start, we have produced this section to help remind us of the many things that make Baltimore wonderful on any given day or night.
I would like to thank all the advertisers who participated in this project; your commitment helps start the healing. We have committed 100 percent of all net proceeds to the city's One Baltimore initiative.
As we move into the summer months, I hope you'll use this information as a resource and support the city, its attractions and its local businesses. It is The Sun's promise to continue our civic mission in providing light for all and our corporate promise to play a leadership role in helping to regain one better and stronger Baltimore.
