San Francisco City Hall to be lit up in Dodger blue 

As the Giants begin their season down in Los Angeles, the San Francisco City Hall rotunda will be lit up in Dodger blue for two nights starting Friday.

But don’t worry, it’s not in honor of the Giants’ rivals in L.A. The blue lights are part of a worldwide campaign to raise awareness for autism, and the Light It Up Blue campaign kicks off Autism Awareness Month.

“Over 500 iconic landmarks, airports, bridges, sports arenas, museums, concert halls, restaurants as well as retail, corporate and media partners in over 120 U.S. cities and 30 countries will light up in bright blue that evening to raise awareness and shine a light on autism as a growing public health crisis now affecting 1 in every 110 American children,” reads a press release from Autism Speaks, which runs the campaign.

The kickoff happens at 8 p.m. at City Hall.
