Romancing the Stone

Gather at Hillwood for a Valentine's celebration on Thursday, February 13. Be the first to preview the special exhibition Natural Beauties; enjoy a lavish open bar, delicious food, and decadent desserts; and bid on choice items in the silent auction.

Proceeds from the event will support Hillwood's work to engage and educate visitors through the beauty and history of Marjorie Merriweather Post’s collections, gardens, and estate.

Please join us in festive cocktail attire, rocking your best "rocks".
