Festival of Trees
November 19, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - November 20, 2014 @ 9:00 pm| $2 - $100
Make-A-Wish® Arizona, GAP Ministries and Ronald McDonald House Charities® are collaborating to create a magical holiday event that raises funds for the needs of Tucson children who are in serious situations.
Festival of Trees starts on Wednesday, November 19, and ends on Saturday, November 22, and includes a Festival Sneak Peak, Festival Mingle and Auction evening event, Family Friday and Saturday with Santa for the kids.
Start a wonderful new holiday tradition in Tucson. With the sparkle from the beautifully decorated trees, the twinkle of the lights and the smell of gingerbread, we hope to get Tucson in the holiday spirit. All proceeds from the Festival of Trees will go directly to helping children in our community.
