Kellsie loved Christmas. She loved everything about it. While in the hospital battling cancer for the third time, Kellsie received the gift of a special princess Christmas tree. This generous gift was the inspiration for Trees of Hope. From humble beginnings four years ago, the event has grown into a huge annual gala. Volunteers donate and decorate over 100 trees, wreaths and holiday tablescapes to be auctioned and raffled. Guests can sponsor “itty bitty trees” which are delivered with gift cards to children on the oncology floor at St. Louis Children’s Hospital with a special message from their donor. All net proceeds benefit children with cancer.


The Kellsie’s Hope Foundation would like to thank all of our sponsors, many volunteers and everyone in attendance for making Trees of Hope a tremendous success.
