2022 Style & Grace Gala

Join Executive Director Kate Markert and Co-Chairs Barry Dixon and Will Thomas, Mark Lowham and Joseph Ruzzo, Sara and Peter O'Keefe, and Mary and Ron Slimp for a black tie gala on Tuesday, June 7 in support of Hillwood's mission to share the cultural treasure that Marjorie Post left for the public's enjoyment. 

Begin the evening with cocktails and tour the special exhibition Grace of Monaco: Princess in Dior at 6:30 p.m. At 8 p.m., enjoy a starlit dinner on the magnificent Lunar Lawn. 

Your support is vital to Hillwood's continuing work to educate and inspire the public through the legacy of Marjorie Merriweather Post's collections and gardens. Gifts will support the development of innovative new programming, educational opportunities, and special exhibitions.

Dress code is black tie.

Please note: All those in attendance of the gala must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Guests must display a physical or digital copy of their vaccination card/record and a government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, with the same name upon arrival. Sponsors and ticket purchasers are responsible for communicating these rules to whomever they provide tickets.

The gala will take place outside. Masks are currently required indoors at Hillwood. Mask requirements for the 2022 gala will be based on DC regulations, CDC recommendations, and Hillwood policy at the time of the event.
