The Walk In Art Center invites nonprofits, citizens, schools and church groups to decorate trees for the annual “Festival of Trees” event.
Participating groups have the opportunity to raise money for their organization by winning the best display contests, auctioning from the tree and getting the most votes.
In a press release, Jackie Engel, executive director of the Walk-in Art Center, said: “The festival has raised over $ 2,000 for various non-profit art groups. This year we will open it to church groups, school clubs, siblings or civic groups, and other non-profit organizations. The more you have, the better. “
The festival begins on November 20th, lasts for two weeks and ends at the annual Holiday Artisan Market. During the festival, the Walk-in Art Center shines with dozens of beautifully decorated trees of various themes and colors. You can see the trees from 9 am to 4 pm on weekdays, from 1 pm to 5 pm on Saturdays, and during the festival.
During the festival, visitors can vote for their favorite trees. The tree with the most votes wins $ 200 and the tree with the second highest votes wins $ 100. Each vote costs $ 1 and half of each vote goes directly to the organization. Participating groups will also earn money when Tree finds a new home during the silent auction. All money from the tree auction goes to the organization.
“The group is very creative and should try to stand out,” Engel said. “It could be a beach-themed tree with shells and starfish, or a Mardigra tree with a feather mask. They might decorate with college colors or sports team themes.”
Groups can create scenes in addition to tree decorations. There is a small registration fee to participate and the group can get the cost and sponsorship to support the cost.
“It’s great for the group to display the sponsor’s logo on the tree to express their gratitude,” Engel said.
