Perhaps your children have taken programs 50th stdwith us, or maybe you did?  Maybe you served on our Board of Directors or volunteered at one of our many community events over the years?  You may have even been with us since our inception--part of a dedicated group of concerned citizens who had a vision to create a community center that would be available for generations to come.  Hill House is proud to have served as your “backyard in the city” for the past 50 years. 


Our Gala Committee invites families, volunteers, corporate partners, community members, Board leadership, and truly anyone who has supported Hill House in the past or wants to in the future to come together, share memories, reconnect with old friends and neighbors, and reflect on the past and bright future that lies before us. Proceeds from the Gala will benefit our annual operating budget--allowing us to offer high-quality enrichment and athletics programs; hire and retain the very best instructors and staff; and maintain our facilities in the heart of downtown Boston.  And, it will help build our endowment to ensure the future of Hill House so that many more generations of Boston families and neighbors will be able to benefit from having such a wonderful a community resource in their neighborhood.


Hill House is honored to have Alexis and Chris Egan, Jean and Chris Egan, Alyson and Jeff Lindsey, and Annie and Alex Sacerdote as our Co-Chairs for our 50th Anniversary Gala.   A huge thank you to our Co-Chairs and our entire Gala Host committee!  We hope you will join us for our 50th Anniversary Gala and help ensure Hill House will continue to be “your backyard in the city” for the next 50 years and more. 

Thank you to our 50th Anniversary sponsors!
