Filoli is proud to share that See’s Candies has expanded its partnership this year to include Holidays at Filoli. See’s has been a longtime supporter of our Jazz concert series and has been a sponsor at each of our annual fundraising galas. For Holidays, the South San Francisco-based chocolatier and candy company will be our Seasonal Sponsor supporting a number of events and activities through both cash and in-kind support.
See’s will have a presence during Santa Saturdays, providing lollipops for children after they spend time with Mr. Claus himself. They are also our key partner for Decadence Nights on Thursday evenings, which will feature decadent chocolate truffle and wine tastings. See’s continued and deep engagement with Filoli is driven by a shared commitment to quality, family-friendly experiences and, of course, our region’s rich history. We look forward to welcoming the Bay Area for this festive seasonal celebration.
Hood & Strong
Hood & Strong returns for the third year as the Presenting Sponsor for the Holidays Opening Night Soiree on Friday, November 22. Founded in 1917—the same year as the construction of Filoli was complete—Hood & Strong is one of Northern California’s oldest, largest and most respected public accounting firms. As a founding Holidays at Filoli partner in 2017 and returning sponsor for Opening Night in 2018, their support has been a key part of the success of this new Bay Area tradition. We are grateful for their partnership again this year.
Kerns and Baccarat Collaboration
Filoli is thrilled to announce a special collaboration with Kerns Fine Jewelry in association with Baccarat Crystal for the Holiday season. Kerns and Baccarat will be furnishing a sparkling holiday-themed crystal display in the Dining Room that will see the family tables set with glittering place settings and the finest accouterments. The splendid display will also feature Filoli’s finest fake confectionery concoctions, vibrant pops of color and unique floral elements. Representatives from Baccarat will be on-site to assist with installation and are generously loaning several pieces to Filoli over the holiday period. We are very excited to present the gorgeous display to the public and thank Kerns and Baccarat for their vision, expertise and amazing partnership.
Kerns will also be donating a special holiday gift to be raffled during the Holidays Opening Night Soiree. Based in Burlingame, the jeweler is celebrating its 75th anniversary and has published a commemorative magazine in which Filoli is featured. We are honored to be included and hope you will join us in congratulating Kerns for reaching this impressive landmark.
