The 11th Annual Trees of Hope Gala is one of our biggest fundraisers, and an wonderful start to the holiday season. Beautifully decorated Christmas Trees, Wreaths and Home Décor are on display for silent auction and raffle. There are trees that include many high value items, such as tickets, gift cards, and merchandise.
The centerpiece of this event is the Angel Tree and the Tree of Hope. The Angel tree is vision of white and gold angels with each angel holding the name of a child who has received their angel wings. A beautiful memorial to the parents who have lost their child. The Tree of Hope is a 12ft tree adorned with pink light bulbs and pictures of children that we have granted WISHES to. The light bulbs are available to purchase throughout the evening, with the goal being to light up the tree by the end of the event. The evening concludes with guest speakers, presenting a check for pediatric cancer research, a live auction and there just might be a WISH to grant.
