The 4th Annual Festival of Trees, a benefit for Hospice Services of Lake County, returns to a magical venue at Sophie’s Day Spa, 3855 Main Street, on Saturday, Dec. 3. The Festival of Trees Spectacular Party and live auction features 25 exquisite Christmas trees designed and donated by community members. Proceeds from the live and silent auctions will support the Wings of Hope grief counseling program for children and families and the special needs of hospice patients throughout our Lake County community.
The public is invited to preview decorated trees at no charge on Friday, Dec. 2, 4:00 – 8:30 p.m., before and after the Kelseyville Christmas in the Country & Parade of Lights.
Tickets for Saturday’s Festival of Trees are available and may be purchased at lakecountyhospice.org or by calling (707) 263-6222.
The event begins at 5:30 pm with savories and sweets on small plates prepared by a variety of local chefs, bakers and restaurants. A no-host bar providing local wines and beer will be available throughout the evening.
Lake County Sheriff Brian Martin will delight the audience with his talents as auctioneer, and Jennifer Strong of Strong Financial Services, a passionate Hospice Services supporter, will serve as mistress of ceremonies. Manager of the Funky Dozen, Larry Thompson, will queue up lively dance music immediately following the auction.
“We are excited to kick off the holiday season with the spectacular party atmosphere of the Festival of Trees 2022,” states Interim Executive Director Hope Moroni. “This event facilitates the coming together of individuals during a traditionally giving time of year in support of the highly valuable services Hospice Services provides in our community.”
