Aurora Historical Society and Hillary House National Historic Site Insider's Look

Third Annual Hillary House Ball

Third Annual Hillary House Ball

The Aurora Historical Society (AHS) is proud to present the Hillary House Ball, a gala fundraising event in support of one of Aurora’s most significant landmarks.  Proceeds aid in the ongoing preservation and restoration of Hillary House, which is nationally recognized for its architecture and historic value.

The 2014 Hillary House Ball will take place at King Valley Golf Club, an elegant venue located about 15 minutes from Hillary House.  A sophisticated social event, the evening will feature fine dining, live music by the talented local members of the After Hours Big Band, dancing, and a silent auction.  Our aim is to offer the 220 guests an unrivalled experience while enabling them to contribute to the preservation of their community’s heritage in a meaningful way.

Tickets are $150 a person and may be purchased by calling the AHS office at 905.727.8991, or in person at Hillary House between 10:00 am – 4:00 pm daily.  A tax receipt for a portion of the ticket price will be received in late November.  Early bird pricing is offered on the first 50 tickets sold, and AHS members enjoy a 10% discount off tickets purchased at any time.  

The Hillary House Ball also offers a wonderful opportunity for businesses to express their support of that heritage and to connect with key people from the Aurora business community.  A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available.  Goods or services (ie. 1 hour of hypnotherapy) may be donated for the auction, with the donor receiving a tax receipt. Those interested in donating auction items or becoming a sponsor should contact John Green, Chair of the organizing committee, through the AHS office.
