“Glad our friends in Sacramento, Crown Downtown, fought against the negativity. Now the positive impact of having a world class venue is showing. Wish us luck in our mission to Save Our Bolts in San Diego.” – Johnny BoltPride, Save Our Bolts Co-Founder and Organizer.
Their investment is showing:
“SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – In the short time since construction on the Golden One Center started, Downtown Sacramento property values are up by $180 million, according to the Sacramento County assessor’s office.”
“What we’re seeing right now is really encouraging with the investment that developers and property owners are making in the buildings right around the arena,” he said.

As the City of San Diego and Chargers continue to negotiate the plans for a new multi-purpose stadium in Mission Valley the grassroots effort to support the plan is coming together. Members of Save Our Bolts have continued to organize the community in their ongoing effort and highlight massive community support in San Diego County for the Chargers. Back on March 20th the group organized a county wide spirit day and casual Friday became Chargers Friday. Participants included the employees of the City of Escondido and San Diego, restaurants and car dealerships.
“We had a fantastic reaction with thousands of pictures posted that day with hashtag #saveourbolts it showed a sense community backing for the Chargers we knew was there. This time for 6/19 were doing it bigger and better. With events and specials at restaurants and businesses around the county. BJ’s in Mission Valley is hosting a happy hour meet-up with a 10% discount for people attending in Chargers gear! And that is just the beginning.” said Marisa Cali of Save Our Bolts.
