Updated: Dec 11, 2019

Thank you to our generous donors, buyers, volunteers, staff & planning committee for their tremendous efforts to make the 2019 Festival of Trees a success! We had many great achievements this year, including several new donors, a new tree layout, and new caterers, plus a record-setting tree sale at the auction. Total trees & wreath sales were more than $48,000! Your support helps us continue our work with at-risk children and families in our community. Thank you for your support.
