Virtual Supper Club Series

Our Highfield Celebrates Virtual Dinner Parties were so popular we decided to create a Virtual Supper Club Series for you to enjoy from the comfort of your own home!  

This five-part series will be presented via Zoom and will highlight speakers from the Marine Biological Laboratory, the Woodwell Climate Research Center, authors Barbara Sillery, Kevin Doyle and more.  In addition to the engaging discussion each evening will feature a special three-course meal from local restaurants including Quicks Hole Tavern, Water Street Kitchen and more.  Sign up for one evening or the entire series!

While these events will follow the same format as the summer series, they will not include an auction or paddle raise – we just want you to enjoy your dinner and discussion.

All Dinner Parties
Thursday evenings @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Ticket: $125.00 per person |
