Friends of Hearst Castle

Established in 1985, Friends of Hearst CastleĀ (FHC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit cooperating association affiliated with Hearst San Simeon State Historical MonumentĀ® and the San Luis Obispo Coast District of California State Parks. Through membership and fundraising, FHC provides funds for educational, interpretive, and artifact conservation programs and supports the District’s ongoing efforts to improve visitor services. FHC support helps to increase public access to, and appreciation of, this unique historical and cultural resource.

The event is an exclusive evening on the hilltop where guests can stroll the gardens, take in gorgeous views, dance to live music, savor locally produced wines, specialty crafted brews and gourmet appetizers, and bid on one-of-a-kind items in the silent auction.
