Everyone who makes a gift to WILL between December 7 and December 31 will automatically be entered in a drawing to receive a pass for two people to attend Allerton Park and Retreat Center’s Valentine’s Weekend Getaway in February or Experience the Hops event in March. Both giveaway includes overnight stays at the mansion. We’ll pull the lucky winner in early January. 

While a pledge is not required, we hope you’ll take this opportunity to make a generous pledge of support to WILL. Go to to make a gift or to be entered into the drawing. All current sustaining members of WILL are automatically entered. 


Valentine’s Weekend Getaway

Friday's Dueling Pianos show (7-11pm): Enjoy passed hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar as the all-request show entertains with classic sing-alongs and high energy dance tunes. Saturday morning, guests staying the entire weekend will enjoy scones and mimosas delivered to their room, and Friday-night-only guests can purchase breakfast directly from the Greenhouse Café. Get moving with yoga or a hike, cuddle up by a fire in the Mansion, or check out Monticello's quaint downtown and many area attractions. 

Saturday evening, enjoy the elegant ambiance of the Mansion with a romantic dinner in the Carriage House at 6pm. (Complimentary wine; cash bar available.) On Sunday morning, venture over to the Greenhouse Café for breakfast (at your own expense), or sleep in and enjoy a late checkout at noon.

Experience the Hops

Learn from beer experts and enthusiasts! Enjoy seminars, dinner, and of course – plenty of beer – during this special experience attended by some of the region's finest breweries. From 1-5pm, attendees will enjoy talks & tastings. Then you can enjoy four courses with four free beer pairings from 6-8pm. A cash bar will be available until 11pm. Overnight stay included.
