By Gateway Center (other events)

Wednesday, December 5 2018 6:00 PM 10:00 PM

The most anticipated Holiday Party of the year, The 25th Annual Festival of Trees Gala, featuring The Diamond Empire Band, returns to Gateway Center on Wednesday, December 5, 2018.

Since 1993, Gateway Center has given local not-for-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds for ongoing and new community based projects through the Festival of Trees events.

This year's recipient is Collinsville Junior Service Club. This organization continues to foster the goals of its founders, consistently being available for less fortunate members of the community.

Festival of Trees guests will enjoy food and drinks as they stroll the 40,000 square feet of space filled with holiday decor, one-of-a-kind trees, gorgeous wreaths and table centerpieces, and tablescapes suitable for any special gathering.  A secret panel of judges will choose their favorite trees. Be sure to bring cash, credit card, or checkbook to bid on your favorite tree, wreath, tablescape, or try your luck at the 50/50 Raffle.
