The Festival of Trees

nina

The Noble Horizons Auxiliary is busy organizing the 21st annual Festival of Trees. This year’s event will start on Saturday, November 18 and conclude with a Gala Party on Saturday, December 2. It will be open every day from noon to 4 pm; late nights will be Thursday and Friday until 6 pm. Admission is free.

This year’s theme is “Twas the Night Before Christmas” and visitors will enjoy seeing a magical display of trees, wreaths, and centerpieces created by individuals, students, merchants, and organizations in the tri-state area. All of these holiday decorations will be offered for purchase in a silent auction which runs throughout the two-week event. In addition to enjoying the displays, visitors will be able to buy raffle tickets for toys, and the Loving Tree will hold gift certificates for special services, such as haircuts and manicures, for lucky Noble Horizons residents.

The Festival also hosts groups from local day-care centers, schools, and nursing homes in the hours before opening to the public. These guests enjoy seeing the beautiful decorations, listening to a holiday story by Mrs. Claus, singing songs, and enjoying refreshments provided by members of the Auxiliary.

There are a variety of ways to become involved in this special fund-raising event:

Create a Display -- a small tree, wreath, centerpiece, stocking, diorama, Santa, or other holiday decoration, which will be up for bid in the silent auction. Bring your exhibit to the Community Room between November 14 and 16.

Underwrite a Tree -- donate $75 to underwrite a tree for another person or group.

Become a Sponsor -- donate money to the event.

Volunteer to Help -- become involved by helping set up the displays the week before the Festival opening or serving as a greeter during the Festival.

Attend the Gala Party -- enjoy plentiful hors d’oeuvres and an open bar, submit final bids, and purchase raffle tickets in the festive setting on Saturday, December 2 from 5 to 7 pm.
