Festival of Trees 2021 Auction

Mark your calendars! Festival of Trees 2021 is scheduled for Friday, December 3rd. The event will feature an online auction in addition to an in-person cocktail party with a generous buffet of hors d’oeuvres. We have other amazing surprises planned for the evening as well. Since Dr. & Mrs. Holaday held the first Festival of Trees in 1984 to support patients of Radiation Oncology, this event has been a huge benefit to our community. Keeping all of the monies raised local, lets us not only provide Junior League of Lower Columbia college scholarships, but enables us to support other nonprofits who focus on the needs of women and children in our community. Last year we raised over $55,000 and our goal this year is $70,000.
