Those who join Friends of Bullocks Wilshire at the Sponsor Level and above ($100 or more) also receive invitations to special, exclusive building events held that year (see below).
Exclusive Event: A Summer Day at Bullocks Wilshire
The event is usually held in July and it begins with a docent-led tour of the restored architectural jewel. Each of the first five tours culminates with a luncheon, and the last tour ends with high tea - all of which feature specialty items from the original Bullocks Wilshire menu and are served in the legendary Tea Room.
There are two ways to receive an invitation to the Summer Day event:
Option #1: Friends of Bullocks Wilshire members who donate at the Sponsor Level or above ($100 minimum contribution) receive invitations by mail and are given priority for early reservations. These tickets are $55 each (maximum of 4 per party).
Option #2: Those on our mailing list who do not choose Option #1 will be able to purchase tickets (maximum of 4) after early registration closes. These tickets are $75 each.
Note: This event is by mailed invitation only. Invitations to the specific events are sent out a month in advance of the event to the appropriate donor level and will include ticket price and reservation information.
Event for the General Public: Bullocks Wilshire Open House
This is a great opportunity for the public to enjoy the treasures of this historic landmark, where our self-guided tour pamphlets will be provided to help you explore the building throughout the day. Tickets are $25 each. All those on our mailing list will receive an invitation to this event.
