Festival of Trees
Posted by Best Beginnings (+37) 8 years ago
Friday, December 6th
Miles City Town & Country Club
Doors open at 5:00 p.m.

Almost as magical as Santa himself, on Friday, December 6th, 2013 the Miles City Town and Country Club will transform into a warm, festive holiday haven. The magic of the Annual Festival of Trees will unfold with the hope for children and families in our community.

Grounds for Change (formerly the Southeastern Montana Health Coalition) will be hosting the first annual Festival of Trees in lieu of Bras and Boxers for a cause. We are excited to bring this innovative and festive fundraising event to our community and hope that you and your organization will join us.
Beautiful trees will be decorated and donated by local businesses and organizations. These trees will be sold by live auction on the evening of the Festival.

Proceeds from this special event will help provide medical and dental care for those in need, assist in funding the FamFest Family Expo and education and support of children and families in our community.

The Festival of Trees will have something for everyone; the decorated trees, each with its own unique style - ornate, trendy, whimsical, creative and sentimental, wonderful hors d' oeuvres , and holiday confections. The Festival will also feature beautiful centerpieces created by local organizations, an instrumentalist, as well as musical entertainment by Exit 53

Two friends and I have been donating a tree to the Salt Lake Festival of trees for six years. We're just starting to plan our seventh tree. If you like decorating or Christmas this is a very rewarding and fun activity to participate in. Here in Utah the proceeds go to Primary Children's Hospital. Last year our tree sold for $8600.

I hope that you have many participants and raise lots of money! Best of luck!
