Get ready for Festival of Trees

FOT2016 Web banner

We’re ushering in the holiday season with the third annual Festival of Trees!

This event, consisting of a weekend-long silent auction of decorated trees and wreaths, strives to bring the Gainesville community together to kick off the holiday season and support the healthcare needs of our local kids.

Take a look at some of the ornaments by a few of Santa’s special helpers:

A sweet bluebird by 2-year-old Jakob.
A “Special Rainbow” ornament by 5-year-old Karenlili.
A jolly snowman by 3-year-old Keagan.

Community members and businesses have the opportunity to support this event by becoming an event sponsor, donating a decorated tree or wreath or attending the event to purchase a tree to take home. All proceeds benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital.
