“Come Fly Away with Us” Gala Benefit Dinners


We invite you to “Come Fly Away with Us” for a series of gala dinners to benefit Hill-Stead. Enjoy four evenings of delicious cultural cuisine from area chefs, inspired by Theodate Pope Riddle’s extensive travels to Europe and collection of souvenir postcards. These stunning affairs include multi-course dinners with wine pairings, top-notch musical talent, and post-reception house tours.

Please join us for al fresco dining at its finest—sans tents—where you can choose to sit at a safe distance among friends or with your guest at a stand-alone table. Bask in the glory of our outdoor masterpiece where you’ll feel as though you are in some exotic locale with the backdrop of rolling hills and a stunning sunset taking center stage.

Guests will be safely socially distanced at tables spaced at least 6 feet apart and may indicate their seating preferences on their ticket order: table of 2, 4, 6, or 8 guests.


Monet’s Circle  |  $500 per person ($375 is tax deductible)
Supporter  |  $225 per person ($100 is tax deductible)

Admission at all levels includes cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and a bidder number to participate in the live and silent auction.

Monet’s Circle guests will enjoy a Champagne reception and a tethered balloon ride (weather permitting) taking in the stunning views of Hill-Stead’s landscape and the Farmington Valley and also be gratefully recognized in the event program.

Stephen Lash, Chairman Emeritus of Christie’s, shares lovely words about Hill-Stead at our June Gala
