Thank you, "No Gala" Gala Supporters!

Hillwood was unable to celebrate the opening of Roaring Twenties in person with our beloved June gala this year and instead invited the Hillwood community to celebrate and support Hillwood with the "No Gala" Gala. We are deeply thankful for the incredible support we received. Existing gala sponsors transformed their giving into philanthropic donations, new sponsors stepped forward to support the “No Gala” Gala, and we received an outpouring of gifts at all levels. 

This generosity is furthering Hillwood’s work by:

  • Supporting the development of innovative new programming, educational opportunities, and special exhibitions
  • Sustaining and enhancing the beauty of Hillwood’s gardens and collections
  • Bringing the legacy of Marjorie Merriweather Post to new audiences

On behalf of everyone at Hillwood, our gala co-chairs and committee, and the Hillwood Board of Trustees, we extend our sincerest gratitude to everyone who has supported the “No Gala” Gala of 2020. To our wonderful gala sponsors, you have gone above and beyond – Thank you!

And thank you for being part of the Hillwood community. Our work depends on people like you. We hope to see you at Hillwood again soon. 

Contact Allison Kingery at with any questions.

Thank you, Sponsors!
