Donation of Silent Auction Items
Our major fundraising event entering it's fifteenth year is the Celebration of Trees, which typically takes place on the last Thursday of November. It is always a good time for community supporters, participants and their families to come together to celebrate the season. We enjoy a delicious buffet dinner while unique art pieces and themed Christmas trees are auctioned. We also have a very lively silent auction as guests Christmas shop and jostle to get their bids down on the items they desire. We accept donated items from businesses and individuals year-round for the silent auction. Please contact us if you are interested in donating an item. We thank you for your support!
