Filoli Member Benefit Events

During 2014 the Friends of Filoli offer three events designed exclusively to thank Filoli members for their vital membership support. In addition to two Member Twilight Strolls, the Friends will hold a lecture under the theme, “Bringing Back to Life the Bourn Webster Street Home— A Family’s Adventure in Restoration.” This lecture, held in the Lecture Hall of the Visitor and Education Center, is preceded by a beverage and hors d’oeuvres reception beginning at 5:30 pm, followed by a lecture from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm on Wednesday, April 16.

Your membership makes you eligible to attend ONE of three Member Benefit Events this year, space permitting. The number of reservations allowed for the ONE event you choose is dependent on your membership level.

Bringing Back to Life the Bourn Webster Street Home—
A Family’s Adventure in Restoration

The McCandless family purchased the William Bowers Bourn II (builder of Filoli and first family to call Filoli home) residence in San Francisco in 2010. The house needed extensive repairs to bring it back to life. Come hear owner Greg McCandless and restoration contractor Steve Plath talk about how this four year restoration of the Willis Polk-designed home proceeded. This is the first time the McCandless family is sharing their story with pictures of interior restoration work completed. Friends of Filoli is fortunate to give you the opportunity to see and learn about the Webster Street home built by the Bourns. Space will be limited so please reserve your seat(s) as soon as possible, beginning Monday March 10.

At this stroll we will celebrate the Filoli Hawaiian connection. Both Mr. and Mrs Roth had strong connections and a deep love of Hawaii. Mr. Roth was born on the islands and grew up near Honolulu. Mrs. Roth’s father, Captain Matson, founded Matson Navigation Company and helped open up commercial shipping from San Francisco to Hilo. Mrs. Roth fondly remembered escorting her mother on their ocean voyages. In fact, Captain Matson met his future wife Lillie Low while she was traveling to Hawaii to teach. Later in life, the Roths maintained a vacation home in Hawaii.

Please join us in celebrating this Hawaiian connection at our September stroll. Members are encouraged (but not required) to wear “appropriate” Hawaiian attire to this event. Mahalo
