Honorary Host

Mary Wheeler George

Mary first became engaged with Filoli as a volunteer and served as a docent, chair of the house and garden docents, camellia guide, and elementary school tour guide.  She served on Filoli’s development committee as we built our development program and is now serving on the collections committee.  Mary is an interior designer and garden enthusiast, so her profession and passions are well-aligned with Filoli’s mission.  She is also a dedicated community leader and has been the president of the Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation, a board member of Music for Minor’s development group, and PTA president.  She is passionate about supporting nonprofit groups, especially those who benefit children.  Mary is presently the Northern California Director of Refugee and Immigrant Outreach for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We salute Mary's dedication and generosity by celebrating her as the 2022 Gala in the Garden Honorary Host.
