A series of Virtual Dinner Parties
2nd Dinner in the series
July 23, 2020
(Falmouth, Massachusetts): Highfield Hall & Gardens is pleased to announce the refashioned fundraiser Highfield Celebrates for our summer season 2020.
This summer Highfield will present a series of virtual fundraiser dinner parties for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home! Choose one evening or as many as you like.
Thursday, July 23, 2020 Dinner features guest speaker Joseph Carr from Joseph Carr Wines who will lead guests through a wine tasting. In 2009, New York Times writer Eric Asimov proclaimed Joseph Carr a “producer to watch,” ranking his wines alongside the likes of Far Niente, Clos du Val, Heitz, Grgich Hills and Rubicon. Influenced by the wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, Joseph Carr’s winemaking philosophy is balance, sophistication and approachability; an old-world style producer, but distinctly Californian, This evening The North Falmouth Cheese Shop will provide a cheese pairing to complement the wines.
The evening will also include a live auction, and paddle raise hosted by the always entertaining auctioneer, John Terrio.
Proceeds will benefit Highfield Hall & Gardens exhibitions, gardens and programming.

About Highfield Hall & Gardens
The house is a rare surviving example of transitional Stick Style architecture, containing beautiful gardens located in the heart of Falmouth, Massachusetts. It is a unique combination of a historic house, expansive gardens and trails, and a vibrant cultural center. Built in 1878 as the summer home for Boston’s Beebe family, the house sits on 5.5 pristine acres surrounded by nearly 400 acres of conservation land and public walking trails. Highfield Hall & Gardens is not your typical historic estate. It is an example of a historic building saved by grassroots community organizing. An effort of tenacity and vision that continues as new research on the structure and its story of the people who lived here add to the building’s significance. It offers world-class music, international art exhibitions, culinary classes, family programs, and year-round special events. For more information, visit highfieldhallandgardens.org.
Highfield Hall & Gardens’ mission is to honor the beauty and historic significance of the house and
grounds by providing high-quality artistic, cultural, and educational programs for the enrichment of
our community and visitors of all ages.
